Rain or Shine

As with most much-needed, much-enjoyed mini-vacations, it was over too soon. It rained half the time and was a bit cold, but we loved every relaxing, silly minute of it. When it wasn’t raining, we walked, beachcombed, built dams, and hot tubbed. And when it rained, we played games (Clue, Jenga, Pass the Pigs, Sorry, and Scrabble), cooked together and ate (a lot), watched movies, laughed, talked, read, popped corn, and listened to music. We communed. In a word, it was restorative. Here are some highlights . . .

“Our” beach, a quarter-mile from the California-Oregon border:

Nigel builds a dam with his uncle as Baxter the dog approaches.

Aidan and Nigel goof off in the cabin:

And, my favorite: Nigel bonds with his new cousin. “He somersaults like I do!”

    Looks like just what the doctor ordered…and the somersaulting comment…priceless. Hope that goes in bean’s baby book along with teh pic.

    Glad you guys had a great time! It was fun running into you, and like you said…It was over way too soon!

    Glad you’ve been restored. Sounds pleasant. “Restored” is a strange word since it sounds like you’ve been stored somewhere twice. Which is sort of okay, I guess, since you stored yourselves in a second location for a bit. You were restored. If you travel constantly and never store yourself anywhere…you’re unstored. An unpleasant state, I think. Storks travel a lot. I think storks sort of resort to restored shores for more multi-storied resorts.

    Hope the getting back to home-life is going well, Tanya.

    M, I just love your take on things. And it always makes so much sense.

    Fearless – thank you about the boys!

    Cheryl, that was such a huge coincidence running into you guys! Hope you enjoyed your weekend too.
