Today Stan has gone fishing. Left at 5:00 a.m. and luckily he didn't wake me. So I had a delicious, snore-free sleep in. Had my coffee on the balcony. Ate a little fruit. I believe this could be my best birthday morning ever!
The internet was down this morning for three hours. I realize I have a severe addiction. I was sure that I was missing out on interesting Facebook news. And can you image all the pins I missed on Pinterest? I shudder to think. Stan had downloaded "Allied" for me so I tangled myself up in the sheets and watching the movie. It was excellent.
I went for a walk on the beach. Alone. Literally alone. I don't think I've ever been on a long stretch of beach with not another soul on it. Usually you can walk for 20-25 minutes in both directions of our condo so it really is a big long beach. But since the tide was coming in and it was lunch time I was completely alone. It was a remarkable feeling. The was no noise but for the waves. No one to judge me in a bathing suit. No one to make idle chit chat. No one to see that I am have a very bad hair day. I waded in the waves and just took it all in. It was peaceful. It is not a feeling that I will soon forget. I love my alone time. I appreciate that Stan is an excellent travel partner but being with someone 24-7 leaves you breathless. This morning I caught my breath.
I wish I had some deep profound message for you all but I really hope that somehow today you all have a chance to catch your breath....
