… seagull makes guest-appearance on beach video …

I so enjoy listening to the pounding of the surf and watching those waves roll in, but most of all I love seeing these “boys of summer” run, jump, and dive into the icy water with abandon. So fun.

I don’t even mind the flashes of little beach-girls running back and forth in front of the camera. (The lazy camera-person refused to move from the beach chair for a better angle, and so it’s NOT really their fault.) But I would love this clip even more if I could drown out the videographer’s annoying snickers. It could be very therapeutic – almost like a trip to the spa. 😀

Oh, and one of my favorite snippets is the surprise entrance of a friendly but homely seagull. Hope you find this as entertaining as I do.


… our california kids …

G.E. and I had such a blast visiting our California kids during the 4th of July holiday. As always, we kept busy AND ate well! (Thanks, Lisa!)

I’m going to let the photos do the talking because they prove a picture is worth a 1000 words! So here is a slideshow worth about 42,000 WORDS!

… “phoney” blog posts …

Just tried the new “call-in-a-post” tool offered by WP. My short-term memory loss interrupted the directions before I signed off, and so I’m not sure what will happen next. My question is whether or not the verbal entry will end up as …

A. a written post B. an audio link C. lost in space

Until the mystery is solved, here is a picture or 2 or 3 taken at Sunset Beach – south of Santa Cruz. The SUN actually SET behind many layers of clouds! It may have been cold, but it was F.U.N.

NOTE: This post AND “random Nevada thoughts” were created 100% from my G1 phone – including pix! The G1 is an older Android – old as in tech years where 12 months equals 75 human years. At least, that’s what I understand.
