I'm basically a corporate widow these days.
Actually, I think I've always been a corporate widow – but even more so lately.
It's making me grumpy.
On top of being single-ish, last week was a dreary week without a lot of sunshine.
It's supposed to be up to 80F/27C by Wednesday.
Anyway, I feel for all of you who live in cold climates because I go stir crazy after a day or two without the sun.
On Sunday afternoon, I knew I had to get to the beach regardless of wind, rain and/or clouds. I drove about 20 minutes and was quite pleased to discover the weather was actually better at the beach than at my house. (Often, that's not the case.)
The storm clouds were still present, but the sun was (sort of) shining through and there was blue sky.
I roamed up and down the beach with my camera, happily clicking away.
Have I ever (four hundred bazillion times?) mentioned I love pelicans?
I wonder how they decide who gets to be their leader?
(Yes, I AM drinking wine as I write this post … why do you ask?)
I took a lot of photos, most of which I haven't even looked at yet.
Nonetheless, I wanted to share this next photo with you. Technically, I know it's not a great photo, but do I care?
No, I don't care … because I LIKE it, and sometimes that's all that matters. I took it from inside a cave at the beach, looking out at the pretty view in front of me.
I like the above photo because the sun is sparkling in it.
Can we all applaud for the sparkling sun?
(I seriously have only had ONE glass of wine. I'm such a lightweight with alcohol. In case you're interested, the wine I'm drinking is called Decoy and it's made by Duckhorn but it's more affordable than most of their wines.)
Back to the beach!
