Vacation Thyme

a view from under the umbrella

We had our doubts about the weather.  Rain, rain, and more rain 
was predicted for our week at the beach. We picked up the rental
car and headed to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The sky was
overcast but we were hopeful. The sun was slowly emerging. We settled in and went for a long walk along the beach. There's nothing like the sounds of waves crashing on the shore, they just keep rolling in. The sea gulls cry, sand pipers dart about, and we see large pelicans  dipping into the ocean for a fish. I love the ocean. It has the most soothing sound I've ever heard. Weather did not disappoint…it was a great week!  
Early morning, high tide

Bliss is the ocean, a towel in the sand, 
the sun out, the chance to swim in the
waves or walk dragging a stick behind
you, a good book, a cold drink.

You are not just a drop in the ocean
You are the mighty ocean in the drop

At the end of the day, Ron and his Merlot and me with a Cosmo,
send you a greeting; right now….it doesn't get any better!
See ya!!
