Oh, my coastal visit lived up to all expectations.
With beauty in all directions, my eyes feasted on the pretty sights.
Fresh crab from the sea bottoms tasted salty and felt tender.
The round rocks and drift wood are so comfortable.
The house my parents rented was very Northwest-ish and when it was full of brothers and sisters it was warm and friendly.
Granddaughters played on the beach, threw rocks in the water, and felt the cool wind in their hair.
My nephew has been a birder since he was a child. He records every bird he sees. I asked him about his bird journals and he let me look at his current log. Now I have an app on my phone and iPad called iBird Pro. John said that when you play the song a particular bird sings, they will come toward you. I'm going to try it out this morning. The app lists all North American birds and gives good information. Delightful!
I have other new things to show soon. I am happy to be home planning my daily doings.
A light dawned this morning when I was reading. When Jesus came, the people wanted Him to win justice and mercy for them because they felt oppressed by rulers and society, but Jesus said, "Turn the other cheek." They were confused. Jesus challenged them to GIVE justice and mercy. I do love to grasp new orders and as I think about going back to school and living in that society again, I find this instruction encouraging.
I liked being with my nice parents and my friendly siblings. I liked seeing four of our granddaughters enjoy the sea air. I slept soundly in the atmosphere of my birth place and now I feel calm, tucked back into my spot here.
Now I shall go outside and call some birds with my cell phone! Funny!
Thank you for coming by! I missed my blog visits very much.
You are a friendly group, too!
