The Weekend Rocked

We couldn't wait for Wally to get home Saturday night. The whole mood of the place here changes when he's home. He seems to bring me luck, or at the very least I'm just so happy when I'm around him. The cloudy days ended and the sunshine came out. The weather was beautiful this weekend. My eye suddenly cleared up.

We got up Sunday morning and planned to go for a drive. We were surprised when Dani was the first one to speak up and say that she wanted to go. We all went. Our only idea was to drive to the coast and see if we could spot some bald eagles.

The eagle population is growing here, in fact it's practically exploding. They say it's almost to the point to where they can be taken off the endangered species list.

We took quite a scenic drive and found an out of the way place down on the Pacific Ocean. This was the first place I've seen here yet where the ocean actually looked like an ocean a bit, even though we could still see the islands. We also spotted a few eagles.

I'm used to the Atlantic, where you're instantly covered in sand as the wind blows and there is the strong scent of the salt water. It's totally different here. It doesn't smell like much of anything and the shores are rocky. It's rugged and untamed.

We goofed around there for quite a while as I took pictures and we all marveled over the beauty of the rocks and the water.

I don't know if I can describe how I started thinking. I became rather taken with the rocks. They're so different than any I've ever seen before. I began considering bringing some of them home and then I tried to resist the urge. What would I do with them? Then I started imagining some artistic things that I could do with them. Before I knew it I was carefully choosing the rocks that I wanted.

Wally was shaking his head and smiling as I was gathering my treasures. It's okay. I have plans for them.

Do you know how absolutley nuts David would go if he saw an eagle? He loves birds of prey. The Golden Eagle is his power animal.

Lucky bitch.

Also I like the bright colors. Very cheerful, reflective of the mood. Might I suggest you surround yourself in some green? Green means healing. Green is good. But I like the bright here, its good as well. Good.

Good Jessie

Ahh, the eagles were beautiful! I caught a few clips of them on video. I've never seen a golden eagle but we did see a red-tailed hawk which was awesome.

Funny... I thought about green... I'm still not sure if I'll keep this layout look for long, we'll see.
