Perhaps Love

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home.

I Love You Honey!!

A Poem For My Friend

I don't have cancer....yet. Cancer is in my family though. My grandma, mom and older sister all had it. My two best friends lost their daughters to cancer. Locally, we have the opportunity to support cancer research with the Relay For Life. You can even donate through this website. And if you get a letter in the mail asking for donations to support a runner in the Team in Training marathons, give generously. Cancer is an enemy waiting to take your loved ones from you and it must be stopped. Support continued research with all your might. The life you save may be your own!

This is a little poem I made up for my friend who is "traveling the path". 10 years ago tomorrow, she lost her oldest daughter, Amber, to cancer. Since then, she has written a book and supported cancer research by running marathons, donations of time and money, helping with Daffodil Days and many other Cancer related activities. You can find her blog HERE. Hop on over and leave her some words of encoura…

Kite Surfing At Oceano Beach

The wind must have been blowing just right because there was at least a dozen Kite Surfers out enjoying the wind and water. After having a photography false start (I had my camera on Manual focus and everything was coming out blurred!!! ARRRGGHH!) we were able to get a few good pictures of these guys and gals.

Look at the speed and determination.... we'll talk about the big smile later!

There were people driving on the beach, playing in the surf looking for shells, kite surfing and people like us just spending some time enjoying everyone else.

This is looking towards Pismo Pier. I count 7 kites in this picture and there were even more facing the other direction.

This is how far up in the sky the kites fly. I don't know how they miss hitting each other or getting tangled up.

You spend a fair amount of time in the water getting wet. Brrrrr!

Doesn't this look like FUN???

Yup, it must be.... take a lo…

June.... Already???

As excited as I am to see June on my calendar, I really can't believe it's here already. That means it's time to begin our Summer plans calendar. Each year we create a list of things we want to do over the summer. Here are a few of the things on my list so far:

RV Camping
Drive-In Movies
Our Local Fair
Impromptu Picnics
Visiting Family
Hwy. 1 Burgman ride to Monterey
Blues Baseball Games
Santa Maria Speedway Races
Sycamore Hot Springs (Hot Tubs!)
Trips to Avila Barn for Local Fresh Produce & Ice Cream
Solvang Theaterfest (Les Miserables & Spitfire Grill)

I'm just getting started and will be adding to this list over the next few days. Do you have Summer vacation plans yet?
