Relaxing, digging, flying a kite..

Yesterday the Day Center borrowed two mini church busses and set off for a grand adventure to the coast. The destination was Seaside, a tourist trap that can be a bit crowded, but the weather was absolutely perfect. And a great time was had by all.

I'd gotten home from work late and so didn't get any sleep, but I'd volunteered to drive my auto so I could take Alex and one of the staffer's dogs. Alex may have been less than thrilled to share her space while we were driving, but she and Carlos had a lot of fun playing together on the beach..

There was a lot of digging (something that is highly frowned upon when it's in the back yard, yet encouraged at the beach and in the snow)..

And I got to fly my kite. Sorry, there are no pictures of it actually up in the air. Flying a kite with two strings while taking a picture proved simply impossible.. Or at least, too difficult for me...

The rest of the weekend will be filled with chore after chore, but one has find time to get out and relax when one has the chance..

Of course, Alex gets to spend today sleeping after her long, busy day.. Next time, I wanna be the dog...

Fun to be had by all. What a great way to spend the day. I love flying kites, and think it would be simply wonderful to do it on the beach. Lucky you!

I feel the pull of the ocean, I love sitting on the beach and looking at it, but have NO desire to put any of me in it.

I would totally love to hang on the beach and watch Alex dig a hole! (and get to sleep the rest of the day away! Ah to be a dog!)
