At the Beach

Had a great couple of days at the beach. Took the trailer on its first trip in a couple of years and remembered how much fun it is to get away. Two days of doing nothing but whatever I wanted. I read a really good book, "Catch the Storm" by Norman Ollestand. Good enough that I didn't want to put it down. When I did put it down I got out my stitching and spent time trying to make a little progress on a couple of projects.

Was frustrated because I forgot to take my camera. It was on my list but somehow I overlooked taking it. It was fun to watch the tide come in and go out. It was very cool and foggy until the sun would come out later in the morning. I could get used to going to the beach. Must do that more often.

We had to come home a little early as Wayne caught whatever was going around at work. He went to the doctor when we got home and is doing better. Don't want to take any chances on it getting worse.

We have now scoped out several places to go to camp and I am sure we will take every opportunity we can to get away. I loved the beach and listening to the surf. It can get pretty loud when the tide comes in.

Happy Father's Day

Today is Father's Day and I want to let my sweet husband know how much I love and appreciate the example he has been to our son's. Also to let my son's and son-in-laws know how much I love and appreciate them and the example they are to their sons and daughters. They have a great example of kindness and love to follow. I am sure their son's and daughters will follow the examples that have been set before them. They are all very special to us.

I am grateful for the example of my own father. Even though he has been gone for many years I always think of him and his example on Father's Day. He could be gruff at times but we always knew he loved us. He honored his Priesthood at all times. He always saw that his mother was taken care of after his father passed away. He was truly an example of courage in the last few years of his life. I was always a little sad that he didn't get to know all his grandchildren before he passed away. He delighted in his grandchildren.
