At Our Beach House!

We made it to our beach house by 9:00. We were driving here in the dark, rain and even fog part of the time. And some of that rain was really a downpour. But Marilyn did a great job driving.

And the boys were WONDERFUL! They were quiet almost the entire way. Colin cried a little bit at first, but then he settled down and we never heard another peep out of him. My theory? Last trip we tossed out the foam rubber mats we'd had in their crates. So when it was time to pack them up, I grapped a couple pillows and put them under their towels. I think the pillows are more comfortable, and that made them happier with the drive!

It used to be that they especially seemed to dislike riding in the dark, so it was quite a pleasant surprise.

We unpacked when we got here, and I put out Halloween decos. Then we heated up some 'bean-oa' (what we call refried beans mixed with quinoa) and made a pot of green beans and had that for a late dinner.

We decided to get a movie On Demand, and got "The Vatican Tapes" -- a really lousy film. Do NOT waste your time (or money).

The boys are very happy to be here, by the way. And so are we!!! Finally!

I could share the rest of the day (before we finally left for the trip here), but I think I'll just skip it. I did get all the garbage and recyling out (near the garage), thankfully! I did some of it in the middle of the night, and part of it today.

I can hear the roar of the ocean as I type this. Lovely.

Good night!!!

I would love to live within earshot of the ocean.

The interesting thing is that we're half an hour away walking. It's not like we're within sight, Donna. But listening to it is pretty cool, I have to say.

So glad you made it down there all right. It was pretty late when you left. Glad that the boys were good during the ride down. They do love the beach house and it has been a long time since you were there. I am sure you will have a nice time with Jeff. Wish I could be there with you all. Looking forward to seeing you with Larry and so is he. I do not remember if I told you or not, but Nancy had some work done on her foot yesterday and is in a lot of pain and needed to cancel going with us. That will make it easier to get together with you and only two of us to see if we are in the play offs or not. Have a good time and I will be calling you.

Excited to see both you and Larry, Sue! Hope you have a good time at the tournament!!!

Love you!

The roar of the ocean...
That must be very nice!

Glad you got there in the bad weather!
Hopefully you'll have some good weather when you're there!

You know, Frank, there's no such thing as a bad day at the beach! It's been raining, but who cares? (smile)

We had a fun day with Jeff.
