On Tuesday after our doctor’s appointment where we learned that no new progress is being made on the delivery front, Scott decided to distract me and take me to the beach about 2 miles from our house. We sat there to watch the sun set. It was so beautiful and peaceful. This time of year is great. The weather is a little chancy, the kids are back in school, and the beaches are quiet. And sometimes you catch a beautiful, warm evening.
It had been pretty cloudy all day, but warm. It’s unseasonably warm right now, but those who think our summer was too cool are loving it! I too am loving it. I’m not quite ready for hats and scarves … or the heater in the house. Some of the fall color is making it’s way out though. It won’t be long before the hillsides are covered in red, orange and gold. I love the change of leaves, it’s beautiful.
The sunset was great, thanks to the clouds we had.
A park ranger was cleaning up some barricades when we got there. It turns out a baby seal pup was hanging out on the beach all day. We just missed seeing him, but there were a lot of seals hanging out just off the shore. A guy showed up just after we did with his fishing rod and some waders. He hopped in the water and was fly fishing right there off the beach. We noticed he kept moving around and stopping, trying to figure out where to go next. Then we saw why. That little dot just past him is a silly harbor seal. The two of them had a stand off for dinner, I suppose. The seal wouldn’t budge and was just staring down the fisherman. We were all laughing pretty hard. I think the seal won and got his dinner. The fisherman probably had to stop at the grocery store on the way home.
I guess it was a stand off sort of like me and little CJ. I want him to show up, he’s late. He’s got no interest. Where are you little guy? You coming to meet us soon?
