34th Anniversary

After arriving home from Austin late Thursday night I was tired, but restless, so it wasn't the best nights sleep as I had hoped. Tony surprised me Friday morning by still being home when I woke up. He took the day off of work thinking it was our Anniversary when in fact it was Saturday. So he decided he wanted to go to the beach for the weekend.
The weather was beautiful, and all was peaceful. Lonnie, Sandi, and Amanda arrived about 5 minutes after we did. They to were anxious to just relax, so we didn't see allot of them. On Saturday we went to Saturday market in Illwako along the wharf, had lunch in Longbeach
and walked the beach,
then enjoyed visiting for awhile as well as be entertained by the raccoon that seems to have claimed Lonnie & Sandi's home as its own. As you can see it is very nervous around humans. NOT
To close our evening we enjoyed a soak in the hot tub, and watched a movie.

Today our drive home was the beautiful Columbia from the Washington side. We have never traveled that side before since we heard it was a longer drive, however it really was a beautiful drive. We stopped a couple times to take pictures. I must admit the greenery, trees, rivers, and streams that are all around us here it so amazing, especially on a 76' day.
It was a wonderful weekend we had together to close out another year, and begin anew. How grateful I am that after 34 years Tony still puts up with me, and we feel a need to continue to improve our relationship to enhance, and endure the rest of the eternities.
