…a sea day….

(c) 2009 Jan Dolby
…another day at sea…the sailboat is flying over the waves today…the wind has been blowing in the same direction for our entire vacation…since July 1…bizarre….the kids are rebuilding their sand bridges everyday because of the crazy wind at nightfall…sun is out today so after I grab my java for two I’m heading back to the beach…

…brownie pizza at 10am!…

I’ve lost my mind…I got the kids two slices of brownie pizza with whipped cream at 10am this morning!…2 Chicks Coffee Shop’s slushies weren’t frozen..ugh…they are on a major sugar high…should be great shopping with them this morning…they’ll crash while were in line to pay for something…

…another great sunny day..surprisingly…three in a row for us…

….I’m working on a new painting of my new character and a seagull on the beach…it’s coming together really nicely…love the colours…very beachy….and relaxed…not as much craziness going on…yet…will post soon…over and out…

…back home…missed it…

…we’re home…kids are at hockey camp, they’ll have a ball….I’m in the studio getting canvasses ready to paint…Supertramp is loud in the background…no distractions…however, I’m missing the sound of the waves…funny…but of course the sun is out at the cottage and it’s warm and we’re not there…the Bender’s have left and the warm weather has appeared…always the way…

..another day at the beach…

…rather terrible weather…sometimes you can see your breath….however we’re making the best of it…we’re playing on the cafe’s computers right now..the kids are loving that…and the brownie pizzas are pretty tasty…puzzles are getting put together, movies are being watched…we watched “he’s not that into you” last night…I rated it as OK…another favourite is the two strawberry pies that we have almost eaten…yummy….so to another grey day we say “rats”…and hope for sun real soon….
