let's go to the beach!

thank you for allowing me to unload on you guys in my last post ... and for sending me hugs and cheery notes in the comments ... i'm trying to play nice in the sandbox and not create any more unnecessary disturbances!

this weekend ... i think we should all go to the beach ...

one of my sisters lives on the west coast and sent me pics of her day at the beach ... they made me smile ... so of course i had to share them, so you can smile along with me ...



the water is so cold that her little pinkies only go into the water every few years ...

she has a wacky sense of humour ...

do you think we look alike? *chuckle* ...

Every survival kit should include a sense of humour.

It might be hot enough tomorrow to go to the beach Saija, but I have to work!!
Maybe I could take a qiuck dip into Katy's back yard swimming pool!!....Lake Ontario!
I hope you and your darling have a blessed weekend together...Love Terry

I'm not sure...I never pegged you as red polish...perhaps a little more subtle...but maybe you just keep that piece of yourself well-covered. giggles...

Saija said...

tina ... those are my sister's tootsies, that she e-mailed to me ... mine would be a lighter tone for sure ... :o) ... you had me pegged right ...

Hey, what are friends for anyway, if all they can take is perfect days? I like you just as you are!! REAL!!

Saija said...

elizabeth ... "if all they can take is perfect days ... " ... you have a wonderful point there ... :o) ... and if my blog only showed perfect days - well i probably wouldn't have any blog buds left... thanks for that - blessings on your day!

I can definitely see the resemblance. :)

I live close to the beach, but hardly go. I get bored too easy. I enjoy the pool instead. Either way, I love the water.

Saija said...

fred ... :o) ... i don't get to the beach often ... i used to love to swim but somehow life has gotten out of sink with that activity! hope you had a good week! ... school starts soon, eh?!

Catherine said...

I usually go to the beach once every summer, for at least three or four days, but I had to cancel this year's trip, and last year's, too. Maybe next year...

Peg said...

Let's go! I will go to the beach anytime!!!!!!

Broken Bear said...

I prefer to stay in the mountains, thank you very much.

Andrea said...

Oh yeah, one can really see the resemblance *grin*. You're right those are wacky pictures to send
:-)

catherine ... let's hope there are many beach days in your future! we have a beautiful white sand beach about 45 minutes from our place ... you can walk for a long ways before the water even reaches your waist ... but i doubt i'll get there for even a walk along the shoreline this year! :o(

peg ... there is something soothing about a beach, isn't there!

rick ... i love the pic you are using ... good to actually see you as well!

andrea ... i thought so! *smile*

Catherine said...

Oh, wow, your beach sounds wonderful! I'm about a four or five hour drive from the beach, and our Texas beaches are less white sand and more oil-globbed messes. But it's still nice to get there when I can. :)

catherine ... the one around corpus christi and the padre islands (spelling!) are nice ones, aren't they? tho' i guess they have rip tides and stuff ... :o( ... we were there once upon a time ...
