Today I took a great walk, wearing only a fleece jacket and a long sleeved t-shirt over my jeans and rain boots.
It wasn't raining, but Sandy Beach, where my friend Becca and I walked, has a stream running through it, and it is either wade or jump, so I choose to wade!
It was a beautiful day, starting out with the fog clinging to the mountains, and then in the afternoon, completely clear and remarkably warm for January.
We are used to the dark days of winter here, but when we get a clear day, and warm in the bargain, spirits rise, people smile and greet each other gleefully, dogs frolic on the beach and the whole town rejoices. Today was a lovely surprise after three solid weeks of gloom, gray and rain.
Here are some photos I took - one of which is my new header!
