Yesterday we packed our clothes and collected up everything we thought we might need for a week by the sea in our trailer/caravan. We pulled out in the early afternoon and headed south and west to the Pacific Ocean. Almost 3 hours on the road and we pulled in to Sea and Sand RV Park. I helped Dayle back in giving hand signals and the poor guy had to do all the hookups when a big squall hit with a lot of wind and rain. The dog and I were safely inside and I was running out the slide-outs and tidying up and getting things organized. Yes, it's stormy here, but we don't mind. We can hear the roar of the ocean and the rain on the windows and roof and we're cozy and warm inside. The waves are bigger than we've ever seen in our years of coming here. Those rocks you see there are 30 feet from our door and the ocean is crashing at the rock wall below. This is seaside living, folks. :-)
We recently got Buddy a new bed. The old one was too big and he only used 1/3 of it. This one has a cozy little nest in the bottom all lined with fake fur. He loves it and he just fits!
We've just been relaxing today - recovering from all the hoo-ha of packing and getting here! I have my books in a basket on the table ready for me to read.
Our two easy chairs. Mine is on the right and you can see some baskets of crocheting by the side of it. :-) Of course my MacBook and iPad are handy.
Here is Dayle in his "nest".. the sofa with the TV right there and his MacBook on his lap.
And so this afternoon I made Mom's potato salad! Now - I think everyone has a totally different idea of how you should make potato salad. I think it's fascinating! I believe it's a very American dish, but then I don't know if it's made in other countries or not. Can you tell me? I made this with Yukon gold potatoes, boiled skin on.. when I cooled them and cut them I tried to pull most of the skin off but wasn't too worried if some stayed on. I chopped 1/3 of an onion in small bits, the center of a stalk of celery, including the leaves on top which I find very tasty, 6 small sweet pickles minced, chopped 8 Easter eggs.. (lol).. and then put a big spoon or two of mayonnaise, a good squirt of yellow mustard and some of the pickle juice, salt and pepper and stirred it up. Dayle grilled some of our Easter ham to go with it for lunch. It was deLISHus!
Okey dokey - we're off to get a weeks worth of medications that I forgot at home. Thank heavens, after 4 phone calls to my doctor's office, they finally called it in for me. Then to do a bit more shopping of things we need and possibly some later dinner out. Remember to tell me if you make potato salad and how you do it. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
