This morning I made a cup of coffee, sat down on the couch then we got a phone call from our friends inviting us to check out humpback whales that were just off the coast eating anchovies. We chugged our coffee, quickly got dressed and met them.

Sadly by the time we got there the whales were gone but we still enjoyed a great morning climbing rocks, exploring tide pools, watching sea otters playing with each other in the kelp and eating abalone for breakfast through binoculars. Oh and a peacefully snoozing sea lion on a rock. It was REALLY neat and totally made my day!

It was low tide, the ocean was calm, with no wind and it was warm. An unexpected perfect morning.

I may have saw some runners and yelled don’t break your sesamoid. Maybe. Then Mike may have said how would you know, you have never broken your sesamoid. This is all hypothetical. Totally.

After exploring, we for coffee and cinnamon rolls in Pacific Grove. We are lucky to have found such great friends that accept us for who we are. We are comfortable and are ourselves with them and I’m pretty sure the feel the same way. Smile

We spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning the house, getting ready to BBQ burgers that I kinda sorta roped Mike into making. In my defense Lu and I would starve to death if it weren’t for the boy and his super awesome cooking skillz.


Backing up to yesterday, I had a work meeting, so Lu went with me to explore and take pictures while I was in the meeting. Turns out it was canceled at the last minute. So we had to work on life long dream of becoming beach bums instead.

  1. Ummm. Who cooks in my house? I will let you answer that question for yourself

  2. My husband is the cook in our house, he doesn’t really let me in the kitchen and I am fine with that! As for my Saturday morning, it was pretty great. I scored a new pair of running shoes and some cute sandals. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. I could just scroll through your pictures all day girl! With my time off, I’m going to take a page out of your book and explore and take pictures and love the beauty around me!!!

  4. That would have been so neat to see those whales but otters and seals are cute too! It depends what the meal is as to who the cook is. We both have strengths and weaknesses. Like that time my husband didn’t wash the potatoes that just came out of the ground….
