Happy Good Friday y'all.
I wish every day could be like this. Today was a stat holiday. So every one was off work. Working in a hospital doesn't necessary guarantee that I ll be off on a stat, but this one I was off! Keith and I headed out to his office in the morning. He had to spend about an hour at the office which is just across the road from a really nice waterfront park. So armed with my camera, I went off in search of photo material while he got his work done.
It was such a gorgeous day. The park was swarming with families. There is a boat launch there and it was busy. Today the weather was absolutely fabulous. Sunny and finally warm.. no ... hot! Until now, there has been a cool breeze, even on sunny days. Today that coolness was gone and it was t shirt weather.
This cute little boat was left at the edge of the water. Next to the glamorous high speed boats, this little row boat called out to me. After a while, the owner showed up . An older man with his little pooch. He told me that he had had this boat kicking around for thirty odd years. He likened it to the same style as the viking long boats. Ok sir, whatever you say! Then he put poochy on board and shoved off for a row about the inlet.
I could have stayed there all day watching people. From the elderly couple enjoying ice-cream cones to the single mom with her toddler.
I really enjoy people watching. I am getting braver at taking photos of strangers. And actually I find sometimes people even smile for me, like the girl with her kayaks. Many boats launched in the time I was there, and I wasn't alone in my interest. People lined the pier, watching pleasure craft set off for a day on the water. I've never seen it this busy here, It's as though people are afraid it won't last and want to be out to enjoy the sun. Remember, it was just on Monday that we had snow .
We left the park before long. We had work to do at home. I had bought the stain a few days ago to paint the shingle siding and Keith had tiles to install as a back splash above our kitchen counters. I got my painting finished and came in to make dinner. Salmon and Greek salad, brown and wild rice and pita bread with tzatiki sauce. Yum , I love Greek food. The lemon and garlic goes down so nice with a bit of white wine. Maybe too much white wine! Walker, you may consider this an almost drunken post!
