Friday was supposed to be our last day
at the beach.
We took the boys for a nice long walk
ending just before sundown.
I hate saying good-bye to the beach.....
C checked his emails
as we were sitting down
with a glass of wine,
embracing our 'last sunset'.
I was sad....
but we had had a good week.
There was an email from the
owner of the home we were renting.
She invited us to stay Saturday
After about a second of discussion,
we said 'yes'!
Now I ask you,
how kind was she?
VERY, VERY KIND, INDEED!
We savored every moment of our free day.
Even Bosco seemed to know it was free.
He romped in the surf
as he had never romped before!
We enjoyed another great lunch
at the Dockside in Port Saint Joe,
and yes, another incredible sunset.
Jane LaFazio recently blogged about
the cairns along the beach in
San Clemente, CA.
I share her love for cairns,
seeing them mostly on our hikes
along the Appalachian Trail.
I spotted this on our evening walk on our free day:
Not sure if it's a cairn or a castle!
Bosco stopped to admire it too!
And there was this wonderful sole print:
Given a 'free day', I had the luxury
of time to let my eco dyeing bundles
dry a bit in the sun
(pardon my toe!).
Honestly, I almost felt like a prisoner
who had been given a brief reprieve.
The world was so much brighter,
I saw everything so much more clearly,
and it was all good: very, very good!
Thank you Beth!
We so loved your wonderful home,
and your incredible generosity!
wishing you peace
today and always!
