Ah yes, I just love the tranquility of walking along a beach (especially a Caribbean one), picking up seashells, feeling the breeze in my hair, and putting my toes into the clear blue-green water every once in a while. Pure bliss for me.
My MIL used to live in Sarasota and, though I am not a big fan of Sarasota in general, the beach was divine!
Of course, Portland has a lovely harbor and yesterday the weather was absolutely perfect...about 80 degrees. John, Ross, my MIL and I went out to dinner at the McCormick and Schmick's Harborside restaurant and had a fabulous dinner and then a walk along the Marina. What a great way to spend the evening.
After dropping my MIL off at home, John and I watched The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, with Cary Grant, Shirley Temple, and Myrna Loy. I am in the mood these days to watch old movies and so have a collection that I have procured from the Library. It is great fun. This particular movie is Shirley Temple in her teens and she has her eye on a much-older Cary Grant (can't say as I could blame her). Fun and funny... Made in 1947.
