We have had a couple of days of that glorius and rare phenomenon known as sunshine.

 Happy sunshine on my face,

I love those warming golden rays.

Happy sunshine fills my eye,

When gazing up at the blue sky

Along the silvery water

Wooden boats sailed slowly

Accompanied by choir of bees

Which sounds melodious and sweet

The sunlight of the late afternoon shimmering on the water.

All of my thoughts are warmer and brighter in the sun. We had a fantastic weekend which included a trip to Charlies favorite place, Seahurst park.  There are always lots of friends for him to sniff at the park.
Lots of other folks had the same idea, and headed for the beach. The kids were swimming, even though the water temperature is about 65 degrees, Brrr. Seahurst Park is just north of our house along the beach. They have great trails, bar b ques and picnic pavillions and beach access. This makes it the favorite summer family spot on the weekends.

After the park and some errands around town it was time to go home and enjoy the beautiful day! Languishing in the warmth of the sunshine.

There were a multitude of boats racing around on the water and you could hear the sounds of summer drifting up the hillside from the beach below us.  The engine of the jet skis, the laughter of children as they played along the shore. The wind whipping at sailboats gliding by.  The waves lapping up on the beach.  
Finished off by a wonderful dinner of rib-eyes from B and E Meats, our local butcher shop and a nice bottle of wine. All in all a most wonderful day to spend with my love as the sun sank over the Olympic Mountains and into the clouds.

Goodbye dear sun, I hope to see you again soon!
