We took a week away this week and came to the beach with David & Ema and family. We stayed in a salmon colored house, snuggled by the ocean in our sweaters and blankets during the day, and got to see the full moon over the water by night. We played board games and drank margaritas and Guinness after the kids went to bed. We ate some really good seafood and we also ate a lot more junk food than we normally eat.
The beach and ocean feel expansive compared to our small living quarters and enclosed surrounding woods at home, and it felt so nice to switch our scenery for a bit. Honestly, the whole week felt like one big treat (even when we were working). I sure do feel grateful to live only a half day's drive to the ocean.
