Yeah... the very first thing I did (after texting Bear to let her know what room we were in and what motel) was to run down the stairs from our porch to the beach and down to the water. I was not there five minutes before a wave took me out and soaked me. Ha! My only shoes had to go into the oven at 150 and bake for a couple of hours. That's okay, it gave us time to watch the Ducks get their fanny kicked by Stanford. Hisss...
One of the coolest things about this place was that at night they had spots that lit up the breakers... we were able to sit on the porch and watch or we could sit on the sofa inside and watch through the glass. I am not sure which I prefered... I liked both places for different reasons.
The Gulls here are rediculously tame and agressive. Here two of them are having a dispute over who owns our porch.
This was one of those... oh you have to see this to believe it moments. The photo does not do it justice. The rose and amber is reflected in the foam and across the wet sands.
Then there was this ooooh... moment. When I took this there was another rainbow down at the southern end of the beach as well. Just a stunning sight to have rainbows hanging in the sky over the ocean with a bit of sun breaking through. Impossible to capture on film but it's stuck in my head forever now.
It was so hard to leave this behind and come home. I felt like pouting... but no, I didn't. I have not had this much fun in memory. That's how I felt about this weekend. It was the perfect weekend. No one got hurt! That in itself was a real bonus. I have found a new friend that I think will be around for a long time. Where that goes... we shall see. In the meantime, I'm going to his place next weekend to check that out. I figure it's the least I can do since his trip this weekend to take me to the coast was about a 650 mile round trip.
(I don't even think I'm worth that.)
As for the frog pond... heavy sigh... it stays as is for the time being, with the exception that it has grown by four in number... and one frog was pulted with great pomp when he asked to borrow money.
BAD FROG>>>> ZING>>>>>>>>>SPLAT!
Have a fabulous Monday! I am.
