Beach or Beer

Beer For My Friends

It is the end of the work day and it was a long day. I can’t sit on the beach so I think I’ll have a beer. Trying to make right things that were wrong all day can be exhausting. Going through paperwork and documenting as much as I can makes the day fly by though. The overall atmosphere in the office was good today. We just don’t have fun and we probably shouldn’t. But, I finally made it home and I see my family doing well and it feels good.

Andrew is listening to music. And, if you guess what type you will get the prize. Christmas music in the middle of February is the winner. He can really show you what life is supposed to be like. “I just wanted to listen to Christmas music, dad”, he answered when I asked. It is fun and most of the time I forget that life can be fun. Not that a beer makes life fun, but why not. The last time I had a beer right after work was ages ago.

As Feliz Navidad plays in the background, Elizabeth was kind enough to make dinner. I suggested I would make some lemon and pepper chicken wraps, but she wanted pasta. Both are quick and tasty. I will make the wraps tomorrow. Or maybe they will be pita pockets. I’ll try to take a few pictures.

It is a lot more relaxing without the TV and Andrew is right. Christmas music is fun, even if it is February.

Winter at the Beach

Winter Beach with Jackets

We decided to go to the beach during the winter months for vacation.  It has worked out well the last few years that we have gone.  beach in the winterElizabeth and I love the beach.  Andrew thinks it is pretty neat, too.  One of the best benefits of the beach during the winter months is that you get to pay less than half the amount you have to during the summer.

Also, you have the beach almost to yourself.   The sun is still wonderful, but you have to wear a jacket, if you want to play for a while.  beach jackets

I find the view of the ocean almost mesmerizing and the sound intoxicating.

Millions of years of crashing the shells into dust is impressive.  We rented a balcony ocean view this time and splurged.  It was worth it.  I slept out on the Balcony one night and braved the cold and wind.  It was worth it.

Andrew didn’t like the fact that we could only go into the water up to our knees and for just a short period of time.

There isn’t as much to do, but it is very peaceful and great to be with Elizabeth and Andrew in such a beautiful place.
