Life at the beach is full. And cold. We’re over halfway through our summer stint here and there hasn’t been much time for updating blogs or processing the photos and videos we’ve taken. That’s a shame because the main subject matter of the cameras, puppies and grandtwins, are very worth looking at! This week’s projects, in between work and twins and the endlessness of pottying dogs and cat, is making curtains for the trailer. One window to go and they look great! Between the picnic table and the ramp door, I’ve got a good workspace. And thanks to a sewing machine loan from Westi, I have good tools. Now, if I could just get the outdoor temperature to warm up enough that I don’t need gloves to work! Did I mention that it is cold?
Checked googlemaps yesterday and found the Seacliff Beach image was updated last year while we were here. Fun! The photo above is our campsite … you can see the solar panels on top of the trailer, our ramp door “patio”, the truck with the camper on it, the dog yard, the picnic table. We must have been on duty because the “Think” cart is parked at our site too. The image to the right is zoomed out to give a little context, including the fishing pier out to the “Cement Ship”. Below the image is zoomed out enough to see the entire Monterey Bay. I love how the satellite imagery shows the “Grand Canyon” of Monterey Bay. This unique underwater landform is what makes our Bay so rich in marine life … and what makes the water so cold as well. (The red arrows show where we are.) Now if we could just get some sun! (Back in the summer of ’08 when we were in Rockport, TX and I was longing for fog, I told Steve he had permission to smack me if I ever complained about fog again. Well, I count my blessings that he isn’t much inclined to take me up on that. Did I mention that it is cold?)
