My daughter turns the big 4-0 this year!
My Son in law gave her an early surprise party at the local country club. This is the view on their deck. (also, a golf course)
I am not quite sure how she could possibly be turning 40 when I don't think I feel much older than that lol. She had quite a gathering of friends and family and it was a pure surprise!
A few days later we headed for the beach in Maine. We stayed in David's cousin's cottage. I walked the beach most mornings.
Saw the surfers getting in some early runs. There were red flag warnings on one day. Bad undertow and blue flag another day. Dangerous marine animals. (I saw one jelly fish.)
I walked to the jetty and back I do think it is about 2 miles round trip. I saw so many people running and walking on the beach with ear buds in their ears? Didn't they pay good money to come to the beach? why not listen to the surf and the birds?? I just don't understand it.
Last post I described these as sea roses nope they are beach roses. And they are all over the coast.
One evening while we were there, we headed to Bently's for the car show and what a show it was!
Shiny like right off the showroom floor!
Husband loved it!
They had old fire trucks too.
This is husband's cousin and my partner in crime at rug hooking retreats. She recognized this guy he is one of three guys that have been to every Super Bowl! He is well into his 80's and hopes to make one more. There have been 56 Super Bowl's! Yes, football already lol.
While we were there the super moon happened! I did not get a good picture of it, but it was bright orange and behind some clouds when it first came up.
It was so beautiful to be at the beach to see it rise. The tide was coming in, so it caused some very high tides but no flooding.
We saw longtime friends and lots of family that we don't get to see very often. We ate until we couldn't eat anymore and had some wonderful cocktails. But all good things must come to an end, and we headed home Saturday. But this Friday we are headed back to our friend's cottage down the road from Donna's for a day or two.
How amazingly lucky are we???
We lost an American icon Jimmy Buffett!
We have spent hours listening to his music. His music gives you pure joy and makes you recall wonderful memories of past vacations.
I do hope he has a margarita in one hand and has found his lost shaker of salt.
Have a wonderful week.
The weather has been perfect, and the trees are starting to turn.
I do hope this weather lasts a very long time.
