As the days of spring pass by, I am anticipating the warmth of summer and ALL that it has to bring!  I’m watching patiently as all of the rain that we have received during the month of April continues to fill the voided space in my swimming pool! We have received so much rain that we don’t even have to run the well pump to fill the pool.  Mother nature has done it for us!  Time to remove the cover and get ready for lazy days by the pool and more importantly my happy place…..the beach!

The angry spring ocean








Although it is still cold and rainy, there is no place I would rather be than sitting by the ocean!  Come on summer!  I’m ready for you!
