Hello my friends! We are in our trailer and settled in for a week at the beach. This is our view! Our son, his wife and boys came down to the beach on Wednesday and spent the night in a hotel so they'd be here when we arrived so they could help us set up the trailer. Very nice of them and they had a wonderful time before we got here beach-combing. It was a nice warm sunny day with hardly any wind and they enjoyed themselves.
After all the hookups were done we enjoyed hanging out in the trailer and enjoying the view. Kristi and the boys went down to the beach but the tide was up and the waves were breaking almost right on the rock wall and so they came back up.
Then we all headed south down Highway 101 to Newport to have dinner at Georgie's Grill. The boys ordered hot chocolate and were amazed when a big cup was placed in front of them with whipped cream and a black cherry on top drizzled with chocolate. We all had a nice dinner and then hugged goodbye. The kids were heading out early this morning to go help our middle son pack his house up to move to California. Yes, their house sold really fast and Shawn and the boys drove down to take some furniture to Beth to hold her until all the furniture was moved. They rented a house while he was there. AND his truck was stolen.. then found.. with a lot of damage to it. But they are now back in Vancouver packing for the final move to Temecula, California. Here is the sunset view from our trailer.
And this is how the ocean looks this morning, although it's clearing and getting sunnier by the moment.
Kristi had fun showing me all the treasures they found while walking on the beach. Shells, small pieces of driftwood, agates and BEACH GLASS! To me the sea glass is such a treasure, like the gems of the sea. And I just adore the agates, each one like a jewel.
What a bounty of treasure!
What is your favorite beach treasure? Well.. in Florida occasionally a gold doubloon will wash up on the beach from a ship wreck.. wouldn't THAT be a find? :-)
Do you have agates and sea glass where you go to the beach? Or do you have a beach or sea that you can visit?
I think that blue piece has a lovely shape.
