A Wee Giftie

Why are people drawn to the sea?  I know why people in the San Joaquin Valley of California go to the coast…cool air, fog (or sun when it’s foggy in the Valley), a breeze, ocean mist, sounds of waves crashing against the rocks, seal watching, sea otter watching, whale watching, and a chance to wear a sweater.

DSC_2099_5121 We had a road trip to Cambria on Saturday as a birthday celebration.  Traffic wasn’t too bad.  Lunch was nice.  The ocean view was great.  Shopping was fine (You had the knit shop. I had the garden shop.).  The trip back was just as nice while we listened to Garrison Keeler on the San Ardo NPR station all the way to the Kern County line.


Thanks for sharing a fond memory.  Happy Birthday!

O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us
To see oursels as others see us!
It wad frae mony a blunder free us,
An' foolish notion:
What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us,
An' ev'n devotion!

Happy Birthday Maybelline! I love Cambria. Haven't been there in years -- but I still love it.


Thanks Bill but it wasn't my birthday. The trip to the coast was my gift to the birthday gal. It was a fun time.
