Happy Monday, beach friends! What an eventful weekend we had…let’s just say that lots of changes are coming our way. Life doesn’t become perfect just because we live at the beach – wish that was true, but nope, life still happens. My brother is currently quite ill in the hospital as of Sunday evening so if you could keep him in your thoughts & prayers it would sure mean a lot. We have other “stuff” going on, but the health of my brother is the most important of all.
Since we needed a few things from the grocery store on Saturday, I volunteered to make the run. I’m not always so ecstatic to do grocery shopping but the weather was gorgeous and sunshine filled the skies with blue so after shopping I could drive home on the beach and de-stress a bit. That’s right, we get to drive on a large majority of our beaches in Southwest Washington so after grabbing ice cream and honey smoked bacon I aimed the Jeep to the nearest beach approach.
Wow, what a lovely afternoon at the beach. It still amazes me how in June there is hardly anyone else around except for me and the birds.
After driving a while I found a nice spot to park and flock with some of the birds. Caspian Terns and Gulls hang out together but the Terns loudly let me know that I wasn’t welcome to join them.
This guy had his feathers ruffled by my presence too.
But these gulls didn’t mind me at all and let me snap lots of pics of them…it was almost as if they were posing – silly guys!
Oops, the sandals got wet so I guess it’s time to get those toes (that seriously need a pedicure) into the wet sand…..aaaaaahhhhhhhh…..
…and the sun is SHINING brightly!!
and look what I found — my SMILE!!! It’s amazing how hanging out with some birds in the sand can brighten the attitude :O)
Well, I figured that the ice cream was surely melting by now so I had better get heading home but look what I found on my way!
A surfer (crazy guy) in our cold Pacific waters…
A beautiful bald eagle looking for lunch…
or just waiting for this fisherman (maybe 20 feet away) to toss him a snack!
The ice cream and I made it home in one piece and I sure felt much better than when I left. I hope that you had a great weekend or at least, made the best of it!
