Nancy here: I have been ‘encouraging’ Bill to keep a journal about our days. He did that during our 1999-2000 travels. I can’t tell you how often we look back at those journals and enjoy all the fun again. Hate to miss this great adventure without a record;o) If these journals become a blog entry fine… if not, that’s fine also!!
Today started like most of our days with a brisk walk about sunrise. After breakfast, I made a quick run to Wal-Mart for a few groceries – A Little Shopping.
After lunch, we decided it would be a good time to hike the nature trail here at Huntington Beach State Park. The early gray day had improved. The skies cleared and the temps were in the mid 60’s… nice temperature for an easy 2 mile walk.
As she always does, Nancy got some great photos of nature!! We saw an Ibis Day Care…really;o) There was one adult Ibis (all white) and about 15 young Ibis (brown and white). We saw another Bald Eagle and she even got a photo of an American Coot “walking” on the water!! All in all, a very pleasant walk – A Little Hike.
Nancy here: Yep, I got some really cool pictures. I thought I had down loaded them as I usually do. However, they are no where to be found?!?! Of course, I cleared the memory cards and emptied the recycle bin… sooooo no photos from today;o((
But, you can't have a blog without a picture;o)
Ever try to remove the zip-off pant bottoms
without removing your shoes?!?!
The third part of the title, A BIG Smile, requires a brief explanation. The nice couple that bought our house back in March called to tell us they had received a notice from the tax assessor which was addressed to Nancy and I. I drove to their home, opened up the letter and promptly handed the 2013 Tax Bill for the house back to them with A BIG Smile:o)) It doesn’t belong to us anymore!! They also smiled and said, “I guess you wouldn’t want to pay this for us?” There was no need to answer—the little dance I did with the smile on my face gave them my response;o))
So, there we go...
A Little Shopping, A Little Hiking & A BIG Smile!!!
It’s great to be a Full-Timer!!!
