A comment was made last night that brought great clarity to an issue I've been pondering..... It was said, "If the weather is nice tomorrow we'll play on the river, if it's bad we'll go to the ocean!"
NOW I get why none of my family love the ocean as I do.....it's always wet, foggy and COLD....and the Northern Pacific coast is nothing like the oceans in Africa or the Philippines. I must work to show the family the fun of the ocean.....
TODAY it was gorgeous....
We stopped at the Chart Room....a little restaurant right on the beach...
From the window you can see Battery Lighthouse, the Ocean (obviously), surfers, fishing boats and sea lions.
These two hung back on the dock while I walked out for closer photos.
Stacia came with me. After the sea lion slid into the ocean she looked down....and said, "It's lots of water without a bottom." She wanted BACK ON LAND NOW, and wouldn't look at ME for a photo for NOTHING. LOL
We found Salt Water Taffy.
We went grocery shopping.
We baked cookies, played games and made dinner.
Hmmm.....I suppose the bottom line is, "I did laundry, bought groceries, cooked and cleaned," but it sure seemed like a fun day. ::snort:: Note there is not one obscene Longhorn gesture in this post.
