Today is an inservice for my children from school...I've got the urge to go to the ocean and feel that wonderful, cold, salt air refreshing me! (Imagine two of my three children looking at mom like she's lost her mind when I suggested going to the beach!)....we'll see...could be a trip to Starbucks on the way back later with photos of what we decide to do. (as you can see..they are added now)
Well, youngest DD and myself headed out...we went to a different "water" place than I had planned, but still great salt air and scenery. I love the ones of the ship leaving the harbour and heading out to sea!
Stopped for a slice of pizza, then on to a Thrift Store, and a stop at Starbucks on the way home....ah...a great way to spend an inservice day!

Have a great day!

I think that is a great idea! The water is so pretty this time of year. Such a different scene than during the summer. Get the Starbucks and go for it. I find that if I entice the kids with some kind of treat, they'll go almost anywhere!

Great pictures! Have a nice weekend.

How awesome. What a great day. I am so happy we now live in an area where the water is just a 10 or 15 minute drive away, so I no longer have to be envious of those who do. The Puget Sound is awesome, waiting for warmer weather to do more ferry rides to the islands.

Great pictures! I was sorry that I missed eastern Canada being portrayed during the Olympic opening ceremonies. We just saw the prairies and Rockies. We're just 15 minutes or so from the ocean, too, but I don't think to take drives out there as often as I should.

I love the ocean. I'm glad you had a lovely time.
