At 7:30 this morning Amber say's " mom I do not have to work or go to school today. Let's go to the beach." I immediately said " let's do a general clean up and then we can go."
Sam came along with us and man we had a blast today!
Our first stop was the animal shelter. I dropped of some quilts and some dog leashes.
Then it was off to the beach. On our way through base we saw Rusty heading in the other direction. So I called him and we met for lunch.
When we got to subway Rusty was waiting on us. So I get out of the car and say "Hey sexy if you don't mind can I take you to lunch?" Amber and Sam are use to me, but the marines that were around us looked at Rusty and I funny. I was also wearing a very controversial shirt. That got a lot of looks, but I don't care. None of the marines dared to say anything to me.
Once we got back from lunch we walked on the beach and did a beach clean up. The marines were out training so it was kinda cool to see them driving down the beach.
Then we went rock climbing and we found some really cool shells.
By that time we were all hot, so it was body surfing time. I had so much fun out there body surfing. Then we went in and grabbed the boogie boards. The waves were so perfect. I did loose it a few times, and all Amber and Sam could say, "Well it is a good thing you are a great swimmer".
Rusty picked up Ryan and took him out to dinner, so now I have the evening to myself. I wish I could say that I was going to do something exciting, but I am starting to feel sore.
Today reminded me why I love to live in southern California. Sun, sand, and surf. Today was the nice break that I needed. My mind is now clear and I am ready to take on the world.
One of the marines called us today and he told us that another should be home this week. So we are just sitting on go. The marine that will be coming home will get back in just enough time to check in, get a few things settled, and go home to see the birth of his first child!
Life is good.
