We had had a terrific time at the beach yesterday. Here’s Nick and Dane playing in the waves – the water was perfect!
Don’t worry, Nick was not washed out to sea. Here are few more pics – click a pic to embiggen
Oh, this is nice. When I walked outside about 7:30 this morning to take Frannie out, I was unexpectedly hit in the face with fake spring. And it was wonderful! It actually felt warm. Ducks were swimming in the pond that just yesterday was frozen hard enough that Artemis could walk out onto the ice (don’t tell Amanda). But best of all, it smelled like spring. I know, next week we’ll get an ice storm and two feet of snow and depression will set in. But I’m enjoying this while I can. Besides, I got a couple seed catalogs in the mail last week, so spring has to be on the way, right? Is that a robin?
Here’s a picture from yesterday back when it was still winter of 3 beautiful girls, I mean 5 beautiful girls at the beach. If you look closely, you’ll see Frannie’s nose right under Arty’s tongue above Amanda’s boot. UPDATE: Brenda noticed that the photo below shows three generations of our family – Cool!
Kelsey, Frannie and I drove to the beach last night after Artemis’ dog training. Today was great – sunny, upper-40’s, probably the best day we’re going to have all weekend. There’s something special about the beach in the off-season. Half the shops and restaurants are closed, and most of the folks you run into are local There’s very little traffic. Dogs are allowed on the beach. But best of all, they city unscrews the parking meters and you can park anywhere for free! Happy MLK Day! Oh, and click on the picture to embiggen.
So, we finally painted the bedrooms and bathrooms at the beach house. I guess it was time since it hadn’t been repainted…ever. Boring white walls have been replaced with less boring walls. They were kind of shocking at first, but now I’m used to it. Click on a pic to embiggen, then click on the picture to move to the next one.
