By the time I had coffee and dressed ... it had stopped raining. Jay, the owner guy was out puttering. He said - at least it's not cold today! and I said you need to stop the rain... and he said that he had. I believed him. I left without my raincoat.
Walked to the library - closed on Sundays and Mondays.... did I not know that? I guess I didn't... then walked on to say hey to m'dolphins --- there were at least five --- all together and then separately --- gracefully arching out of the water -- as they normally do.
I got my trusty iPhone camera... sigh... Puhleese I beg... let me get these guys having fun out there. hah! They were leaping... I tell you LEAPING in front of the ferries! I have never seen this! That picture up there? There are at least five dolphins that just finished leaping. The bird? my pal. I swear he's the same guy that comes around every time I'm there. His wing hangs low... little thing. He stays right with me. Those eyes! gold little beady cute eyes. What in the world is he thinking? I don't have any food --- never do. He's fun. I enjoy having him around. I chat with him.
It looked as though it was going to rain any minute despite my glaring. My battery was getting low and so I walked back to the motel. Clouds were beginning to break a bit. I'm going to the beach! ... my waves need me. And, so me and ol Homer went to the beach. He was so clean from not having been there and all this rain but ... we had to do it.
The sand was packed - moist and some ruts were about. But hello waves! oh, joy. Pulled Homer to a nice spot and got out and walked. I don't like walking on sand... I like to feel the sand on my bare feet but I'm old nowadays and I don't like it getting between my toes and up my jeans and all that stuff. But I walked... it wasn't loose sand and that made it better.
The clouds began to disappear and hello sun. rascal. By evening time ... and it was setting... the clouds had really flown on by and it was just gorgeous. The sounds... nothing like the sounds. I tell you those little bitty birds that scurry scurry scurry to the waves then scurry scurry scurry away from the waves just kill me! I tried to take pictures but well.... as anyone who reads this blogs knows... I do memories not art...
