Walking Up & Down & All Around
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
This week I'm in Pacifica, CA serving as a shuttle service for my two eldest granddaughters while my DDIL is in Nepal. The girls are able to care for themselves, but need a car & driver. That's where I come in. Taxiing to & from school, to friends homes and back...jiggety-jog, errands, fun stuff, you name it and I can get them there! lol. After dropping off one of the girls at school this morning I parked my car and set off on a nearby walking path. Up & down small hills, around the course and finally got sight of the ocean and felt that awesome sea breeze!
At the end of the beach was a switchback of trails that lead to the top of a steep hill. Thinking I owed my Teddy Bear team some valuable fitness minutes, I started my climb... Up, Up, Up & All Around! Wow! This is S-T-E-E-P!!!
I must say I was happy to be distracted by the two guys trying to catch the perfect wave on their surfboards as I continued up the Mountain (yes, by now it had graduated from a steep hill to a Mountain)! lol. I was suckin' air my friends, along with a little whistle of a slight case of asthma. My hubby would've said, "honey, that's not asthma...that's what being out of shape (no stamina) sounds like!" teehee. Sorry the surfers are not visible...my bad!
Tomorrow I will go to the farmer's market at Rockaway Beach. That's what you've been viewing above. The weather is simply marvelous here right now. Not particularly warm...in the low-mid 60's, but not the usual cold, windy, fogginess that this ocean front property is capable of either. Yay! It's about 15* warmer at my house, 45 miles northeast. I hope to score some lovely freggies at the market.
My other DDIL & two youngest grandkids will be coming for a visit later this week or next. We'll have a great playdate! I'll try to get some more beachcombing in as well tomorrow. Nice!!!
