All of us slept late, including the dog. LOL I have walked the dog very early this morning. So quite out here. It has been partly cloudy and sunny. We decided to make a picnic and walk down to the beach. Off we went dog and wagon loaded to go to the beach. This is our dogs first trip to the beach. He doesn't know what to make of the water. He loves walking the beach, though. He loves seeing the different people and some dogs. We hadn't been out on the beach more than thirty minutes, when it started to rain. I mean it really came down. We packed up and when back to the apartment. We had lunch in and I lit a candle to make it nicer. I laid down on the couch for a little while. We are going to Barefoot Landing in a little while, if it isn't raining. If it rains, maybe tomorrow or the next day. We did take a few photo's. It has turned cold the last two days and I haven't been able to get into the pool. It was so stormy and windy there is now a lot of debris in the water. I am hoping tomorrow it is warm enough to get in. I am requesting the pool be cleaned, if they don't do it themselves. I can do some water aerobics if I get to go in.
I did over eat yesterday, despite the fact I set up my menu and tracker. Bad, girl! I did bring healthy food and snacks. I just ate more than I had planned. I think it was from boredom. We did not get out much yesterday, because it was so cold and rainy. The only place we went was to the Williams River Marsh and walked around. It was so cold we had to give it up and get into the SUV to get warm. Today, was better. I am walking everyday. I love taking the dog out. At home we have a fenced yard and he just goes outside when he wants. He doesn't seem to mind always being on a leash outside, as long as he is with us.
I hope to go back to the marsh and walk the whole thing. It is so pretty out there. All kinds of wild birds. I hope I remember to take the binoculars and camera. I want to get some good material to paint and do oil pastels. Maybe a picnic again! I want to get out there and be able to get some serious walking in. So far I have had to walk 30 minutes here and 40 minutes there. The weather isn't kind. Hubbie suggested we get rain slickers. I think he has a plan.
Got to go. Dog is pestering me to pay attention to him. Plus hubbie needs supper. Talk later.
