Here we are again, another Monday. This week will go fast though, because we only have a 3-day work week. Thanksgiving and the long weekend is just around the corner. Oh, I am so looking forward to a few days off. Last weekend was a whirlwind. On the go with no time for much lolligagging it seems. I love to lolligag - should have been my middle name. I'm not saying that last weekend wasn't fun, because it was. We had a blast! We left home Saturday afternoon and arrived at the beach around 3:00. Just in time to catch a few pics, watch the waves and feed some seagulls.
Here are some of the seagulls that we fed. They are very brave and not afraid of people at all; as long as you have food, that is.
This stud muffin here was a bit of a porkchop. He was very brave and decided that the hood of my car was his private domain. He took offered bits of food from my fingers. I gave him the longest tidbits because he had a tendency to snatch without being very considerate of my fingertips. Thank you very much!
This portrait here is my attempt at being rather artsy fartsy as my hubby would say. Focusing on the beach grass in the foreground and softening the background ocean and sky.
As you can see, the color of the ocean mimmicks the sky. Today was somewhat overcast which made the ocean appear rather grey. I think it's very soothing.
Here is Sir Porkchop himself still holding down his fort atop my hood. He really was a handsome seagull. At one time, there were around 20-25 birds gathered round begging for handouts. Several children and I had a good time at the feeding frenzy.
The tide was out which uncovered some ruthless looking rocks. A veritable smorgasbord for the seagulls who eat just about anything.
Aahh, breathe deeply and relax while listening to the soothing lull of the ocean.
Here's what the hubby did immediately upon checking into our hotel room. Yes, remote was in-hand.
My hubby and I with brother-in-law on the right. My hubby is the oldest of three boys - can you imagine?? S, on the right, is the baby of the family. Looks like I should steer clear of the sweets for a while. I hate seeing pics of myself - can be so depressing. *sigh*
Brother in-law with his lovely wife. They are so much fun to chum around with. We had such a good time with them - always do!!
The stars of the concert - Three Dog Night!! They were so good!! They did all their hits plus several lesser known songs off their albums (yes, I said albums!). They also have a new CD in the works which they played a couple of the cuts. One was awesome, something with Blues in the title. It has a very blusey sound to it and I just loved it.
They are in-costume here doing their mega-hit "Mama Told Me Not to Come" with a twist. They sang it "rap" style - like it would sound if it were on the charts as a hit today. The lead singer Corey, on the left is in character as "Poop Daddy". Too funny!! We loved it!
The guy on the left (looking straight at my camera) is Danny and he is the other lead singer. He is the main guy that I remember from years ago, but then he had very long, dark hair. hee hee, we all have a tendency to change with time...
Lead singer Corey again singing one of my all-time favorites. Road to Shambala. I had forgotten just how many good songs they have done. Good, good music my friends.
I think pampas grass is just beautiful (not sure how to spell that). This house was just across the road from our hotel and I was enamored with their lovely little garden. So nice...
And this is the view of the ocean from the hotel. I used the zoom zoom here to catch the lovely blue of the sky reflected in the ocean's color. Just beautiful!
