Some days, the beach

(Pre-script: To get the most out of this post, possibly including, but not limited to, an incredible urge to shout "LUCKY!,"* go down to the playlist, click on the song "Heavenly Day," and then come back and resume reading. I'll wait...) (...still waiting...)

I spent just about every Sunday of summer '08 on the beach. I never get tired of looking at the ocean, and can't think of a better place to take a child. The weather is very unpredictable, though; it can be hot and sunny in San Jose, and at the same time along the coast it can be overcast, chilly, with a breeze that bites you, directly through whatever layers you may happen to be wearing. And it hurts... Like you are being bitten with actual teeth...cold, frozen teeth at that. So imagine the joy and delight of my heart when the weather forecast for a Sunday in the middle of November was 80 degrees with little to no wind. And imagine my joy and delight when I got to the beach and the forecast was correct. Now let's all take a moment to reflect on that...a warm, sunny, NON WINDY(most important) beach day in the middle of November!!!!

Y'all, it was fantastic.


P.S. ...and don't forget the sea glass, honey...
