Long overdue

This weekend the Husband and I spent a much-needed weekend at the beach.  Long Beach, to be precise.  It was lovely  :) 

Kids chasing seagulls... made me nostalgic

The Queen Mary, and.... paddleboarders?  Is that what this funny looking hobby is called?
Monks need their exercise too

Long Beach is such a hodgepodge of busy harbor, oil rigs, tourist destinations, and beautiful residential areas.  Chaotic, yet peaceful.  We walked over 10 miles in two days, just taking in the sights and breathing in the cool salty air.  It was restorative.

And just in time too, because school starts up in... two weeks?!  And so will begin the busiest 10 weeks of my existence.

Till then, I'm going to close my eyes and pretend that I'm on a sandy beach, instead of in a cube.
