My sweethearts Birthday

Today is my sweethearts Birthday, and we went to the beach this past weekend to celebrate. It was of course an amazing time with perfect 70' weather, and no wind. You couldn't ask for anything better. We brought the 5th wheel and parked it in Ocean Park at Lonnie's home for the Summer. Lonnie & Sandi were not their however, so hopefully we can plan better for next time.

Friday Tony took off work so we could get an earlier start. The entire journey was clear, bright and beautiful. We were not in a big hurry, however only stopped one time in Astoria for fish n chips. One of our favorites there. The remainder of the day was setting everything up, going to the beach, and relaxing. We even watched a movie.

Saturday Tony enjoyed his favorite past time of golfing while I went into Long Beach Washington to look in the shops, walk the beach, and managed to get the truck stuck in the sand on the beach. Thank goodness for a young man who willingly hooked a rope to his truck and pulled me out. Quite embarrassing, but how grateful I am for the help. So much for being brave to go on my own. I ended up going back to the golf course to wait for Tony to finish and wrote a letter to Anthony.

With all the wonderful emotions we were feeling for our blessings we went to a park for a picnic and discussed things we would like to do, accomplish, and when we plan to return to this special spot. What a beautiful world we live in.

Sunday was a relaxing melancholy day. I took advantage to relax while reading or studying lessons from church. The melancholy is due to having to head back to reality in Portland. The closer we got, the hotter it was. Thank goodness we had closed all blinds before we left home, and had the ceiling fans on. When we walked into the house it was very cool and comfortable.

Monday life is back to normal, but the time I spend with my sweetheart is always treasured. Or at least most of the time. Ha, Ha
