A fun day

Hubby and I met in graduate school about 43 or 44 years ago. I liked his twinkly eyes and grin. So one day after I had made blueberry muffins I brought some to give to him. He told that story to our son, DIL and granddaughter yesterday when they called to wish him happy 69th birthday. That story came out because I made him blueberry muffins yesterday morning before he woke up. He added in “I think she liked me” - cute.

We took the whole day off which was lovely. The highlight was going to Ventura and having lunch at the restaurant on the pier. We both got the salmon platter and a beer and watched the sail boarders zooming by. With windows on 3 sides of the restaurant it was as usual a lovely view.

There were high winds blowing out to sea so the water was more like a lake and it was low tide. Loads of shore birds from large to tiny hunting for food and resting on the ocean quite far out as no waves. 

After lunch we walked the pier and walking back was quite interesting with the wind gusts but also exhilarating. We were glad though that we had parked close as the sand was blowing into our shoes once we were on the boardwalk. I woke this morning to no wind so we made it through without any wildfires. A great 24 hours.


  1. I love this post and the window it gives to your long marriage. Glad you both had a great day.

  2. What a lovely story to share with all of us.

    I am glad that you had a lovely day.

    God bless.

  3. Ditto to what Jean and Jackie said in previous comments. It really is such a gift to share life with those we love. Your story and the life you're living, now, is encouraging. Even when life around us is a bit unsteady, our relationships can strong.

  4. Lovely story. So much fun to share your history with the young'uns.
