hi, linda. sounds like a nice trip you had. where was it?And I'm back! With about 10 lbs of sand included! Did NOT want to come home except to see my furbaby, who is all clean, shiny, and fluffy from her grooming at the kennel. Was not a good beach trip this year as far as photos or seashells, but everything else was just wonderful. Only rained at night which interfered with pretty sunrises due to cloud cover. Saw a pod of dolphins in the ocean (previously only saw in the bay). Hand-fed a seagull who then decided to steal the bag of popcorn. She tried to dump it upside down to share with the others. Pretty smart bird! Good food, good fun. Night time beach blanket time with hubby. Watched a storm out at sea one night which was pretty awesome. The lightening behind the clouds with the occasional long flash was photo worthy but I didn't have my camera with me at the time. Now it's yard work time for hubby and laundry time for me. Lots went on here while I was gone, I see. Big welcome to ladyfur!
