We took the yacht out..

Not this one.

Actually, chairs. We took lawn chairs out.

I’ve picked out my new residence..

Yep, right under the bridge, at least at excruciatingly low tide

These three who tied up together didn’t seem suspicious at all. Not at all.

And no one used binoculars on them. Not at all.

Such a pretty day:

The only spots that were goose-poopless.

I was a tad underwhelmed, though, because nowhere here was my little Professor Irwin Corey princess I’d recently seen via another text that made me ROAR..

Trust me, she is screaming with joy!

I’m not sure why, but a foghorn sounding on even a brilliant (near me) day makes me misty. In a good way, though. I used to wake to it on snowy school mornings, and heard it a million times more, back when I fished off the most ridiculously freeing and wonderfully smelly structures.

And on the way to our pretty day, we saw that same harbor town which has somehow been monied into a metropolis, and on the way home, himself said that two of our peers — one who is not coming back physically and he who takes care of her — are considering an assisted living move.

We camped in mountains with our little Webelo Scouts and their siblings, slept on rocks under a tent with heads going downhill (well, some of us). Thanksgiving dinners together, Christmases, wedding receptions, funeral gatherings, huge birthday parties, and now..

Another passage, this. I must somehow get used to them.

But it won’t be today.

I’m looking the other way..

Love and an octopus

    Oh, those babies make me smile. šŸ˜ Your yacht…Just like me sitting sipping wine in our courtyard. OK, slugging down water on the patio.

    1. Same baby, different light (and dampness) — but we said from her post-womb beginning and right through these past 9 months, “A million different faces this one has!” And yep, I’m sipping wine but in my lilacyard, mostly because I wanted to try the 14 Hands Cab Sauv I’d gotten the loved ones who ended up not coming. Can you not have wine anymore? Or is the water-slugging because it’s danged hot there? (If I recall photos correctly, you like/d white wine?)

        Oh, I still do wine, and I’ve had that 14 Hands–I liked it. The heat is too much (says everyone in the US!), so water has been my pleasure lately. Not much kick to it, though. šŸ˜‰

      2. Yesterday, N.C. daughter sent a screenshot of her ten day forecast. I’m guessing yours is as bad or even worse. šŸ˜‘ And yes, it seems 2/3 of the contiguous States are in danger of all sorts from the heat. If only it would fry Covid (and then never return). Stay cool. šŸŒ·

  2. Nice octopus. It doesn’t happen to have particular significance because you pointed it out, does it?

    1. No, lol – the caption presented itself because she is love and there was an octopus near. It could well have been, “Love and a squeezy-whale.” Kinda glad it wasn’t!
