|Kayakers near Naples area of Long Beach. One doesn’t often see those distant mountains or skies this blue.|
Our weather pendulum has swung again, from an extended cold snap to the kind of delightful conditions that make people in Michigan say, “shovel out the car honey, we’re moving to Southern California!”
It’s been a busy weekend packed with family events: a cousin’s post-wedding reception/party (the ceremony itself, held on a beach in October, was small and private), entertaining relatives from out of town here for the event, and seeing off BIL (Uncle B) and his wife, who are leaving today for home…home being their boat in the South Pacific. Sunday afternoon we borrowed a friend’s Boston Whaler and went cruising through Alamitos Bay, with a stop for lunch along the way.
We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.
|Duffys and Dingys and Yachts, oh my!|
|Guarding the entrance to the Naples canals|
|Jeune homme’s feet are now bigger than mine!|
|Such a vintage beauty, but oh what work to keep all of that wood ship-shape!|
|Silly after lunch. Only had one beer, honest!|
The day was perfect for a marinière and light cotton sweater and scarf.
Today is a holiday from work and school, but after the busy weekend I need it for a “catch up” day. Do you ever have times where you feel as though you need a weekend from your weekend??
