While the camera battery charges. . .

I just took a picture of the darling card I received in the mail from Suzanne (thank you!). The camera turned the picture sideways, and that is its way of telling me the battery is ready to be charged. The last time that happened I couldn't post photos until after it sat quietly in the socket sucking up electrical power for a couple of hours. I can't wait to show you her card, but it will have to wait until next time. The stamp had a kangaroo on it - cute! The card is even better; it has two koalas and two platypuses and some beautiful brown and tan ribbon to accent it.

Larry and I had another day off together and went back to the beach. Nice! We rarely go twice in two weeks, in fact we rarely go twice in the same summer. We have observed over the years that if we try to recreate a perfect experience it rarely lives up to our expectations, but this beach visit surpassed our expectations! When we arrived there was not one other person as far as we could see. In front of us was just sky and water, to each side just sand and trees way off in the distance on one side, and sand and a lighthouse way off in the distance on the other side.

We swam for a long time, then got out and walked all the way to the point in one direction. By the time we got back the beach was full of people! Where did they come from? We ate our lunch then walked all the way to the lighthouse the other way. We came back and swam some more, and then it was time to come home. Larry teaches guitar lessons, and we had kids in and out of our house the rest of the afternoon and evening.

Photos next time!

That sounds like a wonderful day! And how nice to have the beach all to yourself in the morning!
We live near the beach too, but hardly ever go.Mostly because the beach is small, and on a warm day it is very very crowded .

This sounds like a wonderful day. I am glad you both had a nice time again, and I know what you mean when you say it sometimes doesnt live up to the expectation. So happy that you both enjoyed yourself.
