Happy Mother’s Day

We finally sauntered out of the house at 11am today. A bit later than I had hoped for but not a problem. Even the traffic and freeway closure due to a severe accident didn’t set us back. We arrived at the beach at about 1pm. Our original destination was Cannon Beach, but on a whim we ended up at Indian Beach. A hilly state park between Cannon Beach and Seaside.

It was better than I could have ever expected: not a lot of people, pristine beach, great weather and gorgeous scenery. We lit a bonfire as soon as we got there and flew the rainbow kite we brought. We had snacks. The girls played in the water and checked out the rocks and anemone in the tide pools. It was relaxing. Except for the drive back. I wish I had a driver or partner. The teenager had been out late and was too tired to drive.

We stopped at Spaghetti Factory on the drive back too. I ate way too much and while it’s reeking havoc on my digestion it was well worth it. It’s not often I indulge like this. A whole weekend of doing as I pleased….pretty much. If only life was always so grand. I can’t imagine any other Mother’s Day topping this one except maybe one filled with beautiful, healthy little grandbabies eager to share lots of love with Grandma. Now that wouldn’t be so bad either….I’m thinking. But let’s let that please be a long way off. Lol

Another highlight was that someone was giving away matching Schwinn beach cruisers…..they need a little work. A few rusted parts, but mechanically sound and with great paint, plus retrofitted with gears and in my favorite red color. Can’t beat that now can you?

Hope anyone reading this that’s a mom had a great Mother’s Day too. I woke up actually very sensitive and teary eyed remembering the mothers day I spent alone not that long ago. It’s too sad to retell now and I’m way too tired. They definitely can’t all be stellar. But here’s to hoping they only get better and better. Right?

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

    1. I’ll make it down that way eventually. We’ve been to Lincoln City, Rockaway and now Indian Beach. The Oregon coast is so beautiful and serene and pristine and equally as importantly not full of pretentious rich people thinking they own the beaches in front of their house and keeping people out, like in California.

      1. Yea. I grew up in so cal and while it was absolutely fine with me walking past prostitutes on the way to middle school I definitely wanted better for my children.

        The only one thing I can honestly say I miss about California is that most people in the cities weren’t born there or their parents weren’t. So it becomes a very inclusive place with people from all ethnicities and backgrounds. You could literally bump into someone from every part of the globe there. So it is a more welcoming place to live and you make friends much easier. At least I did, no matter where in can went.

        I was warned before moving here of the “Seattle freeze” and I didn’t pay it much mind but I do think there is a bit of that here and definitely a lot of hate for Californians. So much so that even though I can’t and won’t lie about where I am from I told a friend moving up here to consider lying about it…… juts to not get any flack. Lol.

        It’s fine. I love it here. The only thing that will entice me away from here is maybe true love or a beautiful beach, but as long as my kids want to be here and I can make a living…..here is where I will stay. It’s so beautiful here.

        Whereabouts in North Cali where you?


      2. Sad, but progress progresses. Wish there was a way to take good jobs and decentralize them so big cities didn’t get such a mass surplus and people could make a good living and have a good lifestyle wherever they are from. That would solve a lot of problems. I think.

    2. Rant over….lol

      I want to make it all the way down the coast. Every beach, every city has it’s own unique beauty and attributes. I love the ocean so much. So, so much. It amazes me how affordable it is to live at the beach in this state until you consider there are no jobs near there really.
