who-we-are-in-RL was having a Very Important Business Meeting down in Carlsbad today (which is 100 miles drive south or 160.934 kilometres according to mr. google) and we BEGGED to be able to tag along because we wanted to Take The Long Way Home via what are known as the “Beach Communities” (see map).
she said yes but as long as we kept out of the way.
which we Did (sort of) until someone lovely at the meeting happened to mention the phrase (is it a phrase or just a word? or is it A Movement? discuss:) “teamgloria” and that they’d visited us Here and it all became rather delicious and we felt Most Involved (so much fun).
after that we kept a Low Profile and just snapped away on the grown-up-camera which we view as the modern version of a Brownie camera (which was our first camera many years ago – an aged relative passed it on to us and it took gorgeous film-based-shots).
would you like to see them?
you are lovely.
it was indeed the Very Long Way home – but most often that’s quite the nicest way to get anywhere – taking time, looking around, snapping pictures, smiling at the surfers waiting-for-a-wave, looking out to the horizon, feeling all-happy-and-freckly and ALIVE.
