standing in the sand facing the sun with seagulls.

darlings

yesterday was a WHIRL of meetings and calls and driving here and there and then there was a lovely p a u s e in the schedule.

we happened to be not far from the Ocean (the delights of living in southern california make this sentence possible and most delicious to write or rather t y p e).

so we parked the perfectly silver prius and took a stroll, the cardigan slung casually over one shoulder (it was a cool day but only relatively speaking for this climate) and got lots of sand on the doctor martens (which we had to wipe off carefully at a 5 star hotel before our next meeting so we still looked Professional, if a little sun-kissed).

the ocean was sparklingly blue.

and the sky similarly so. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and the glittering sunshine made everything just so Hopeful. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

we watched the seagulls fly around. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand then noticed that most of them had settled their bottoms into the sand and their chins into their chest and were just Gazing at the Sea and enjoy the sun bestow freckles (do seagulls get freckles?)

so we did the same.

and it was ever so nice.

isn’t life delicious?

will you get a chance to pause to sniff a fragrant rose or join seagulls in freckle-making or sit quietly by your kitchen window and look out at the rain and consider which novel to read next or curl up under a tree while all wrapped up in cashmere layers and look up at the wind playing havoc with the leaves or………..

do. tell.

  1. Aaaah; a lovely pause. I enjoyed it too. Now sitting by the kitchen window, looking at the blue sky with cotton puff clouds, wondering if I am going to venture outside and risk the return of hayfever. Was at the Post Office/Bookstore the other day and saw Red magazine but still only the September issue :(

do say something - do :-)
