the tides are changing~

its official, the beach is more home than home, i spent 244 days at the beach in 2013! i decided not to do a beach diary this year, but i will acknowledge the dates i stay here, again, i want to see how much this place has a lunar pull on me.

yesterday was such an incredible day, i sat outside on the deck in the warm sun reading a book with maggie. it was the flawless kind of day you dream of, even if its winter. it was such a still and warm afternoon, after finishing my book i went to fix cocktails, waiting for scott's return, in the 15' i sat out starring at the sea i saw 12 whales, 5 heading south, 6 in tight circle looking like a feeding frenzy and the 7th one heading to join them, i just knew they would be breaching any minute, gray whales circle their prey then lunge up filling their jaws, its an incredible sight to behold, but at that exact moment scott returned home to our cottage by the sea. a neighbor was walking by, they had just gone swimming in the sea, hard to believe in our chilly waters, but it was just that kind of a day... perfect~
