Monday, August 12 2013 - a Day of Real Rest
Monday, August 12, 2013
We walked across the ocean highway from the bay cove over to the beach.
So exhausted from MONTHS of non-stop working in the slop, the dirt, the exhausting lists of endless filthy dirty work, I need to collapse, today.
So glad its overcast and rained in the night. The garden is full of weeds and in need of new rows created to plant more beans, etc.
But I'm overwhelmed with exhaustion. I have NO TIME to exercise as it would take away from the valuable time I need to work work work on all these filthy nasty chores here.
Yesterday was the first sail. I FINALLY finished the hard grueling overwhelming work to ready the boat. It's taken months.
But to be rewarded, the weather was a top #10 day of the year. Sea breezes ideally perfect from SW at the correct knots for a perfect sail.
The tides currents were perfect. The sun was shining the humidity low.
It was a special gift from Mother Nature and this Mother to my daughter for her 22 birthday yesterday to sail on a boat named after her - a boat she's refused to sail on for years after we had a mishap on it and it frightened her - until yesterday.
I was so so so happy she went sailing on her special day. It was flawless and we beached the boat in a cove and walked over to the ocean for perfect swim in warm, clean waters with no jellyfish and no bugs on the deserted stretch of beach with no lifeguards.
Anchoring the boat in the cove to walk over to the ocean for a swim and to fly a kite.
