I'm in love

I went into town yesterday, browsed through a few of the little shops in the historic district, had lunch at a cute little cafe, went to the local grocery store, then walked along the beach for a few hours. This town is really sucking up! The weather was perfect, the people friendly, and I got to play peek-a-boo with a few sea lions.

::pokes head up:: "OMG! Is she *looking* at us?" ::dives down::

::Peeks head up again:: "Shit! She's still there!" ::dives back under::

"Fine! I'll just stare back then!" ::cautiously gets head above water and stares:: ::starts to freak out:: ::dives back down::

ROFL!!! This went on for about 20 minutes. *g* I saw three blue herons wading in the shallows, a kingfisher, bunnies all over the friggin place, redwinged blackbirds, which I haven't seen for years. It's lushly green and the air has that ocean salt-tang to it. I've decided the trees aren't going to obscure my view, they're mostly filled in already. Right across the bay is an oil refinery. It's far enough away that it only sorta spoils the view-- during the day. At night, when it's all lit up, it's almost magical looking, like Santa's castle or the Emerald City or something.

Now, if I'd just get that interview. . . *g*

Current Mood: happyhappy

Good luck babes - sending good vibes your way. It sounds so idyllic. Are we getting to see piccies soon?

Ya know, I have absolutely no idea how to post pics here in lj land! You use photobucket, right? I need to play around with that. *g* Right after I find the USB cable for my camera. . . Grrrrrr, How do these things get lost?

I adore sea lions, it sounds just beautiful there, and yes! I want piccies too *bfg*

good luck in your interview ::crosses fingers for you::

I'll try to figure out how to post pics here today or maybe tomorrow. There is this really cool State Park about 15 minutes away, and I want to go see that! I'll take pics while I'm there and see if I can get them posted. :)

Oh fab!! just sign up at http://photobucket.com/ upload pics, then past the code in your post, the one that starts -- a href="http://photobucket.com"

or -- img src="http://img.photobucket.com/

my Pbucket used to just have the 'img' code, but now has added the 'a href' code in front, so unsure if everyones is the same.

You're in Washington?

I am! I've been over near this coast for about 2 years now. They keep wanting to send me back to the other coast, but I don't wanna drive allllll the way over there! *is so lazy* *g*

Mmmmm...it sounds like where I just left! I just moved back to FL from CA...I miss the sea lions :( They're big wet dogs :D

They are, aren't they? So cute! And playful! You've got dolphins and manatees close to you, though. *is jealous* /g/
