Dreaming of Africa
I am married, a lifelong musician, somewhat competent photographer, and world traveler. Having been around for over 60 years, I have lots of "stuff" floating around inside my head that is screaming to get out.

All work and no play makes for a real drag

Work, Work Work that is all that it seems that we do. Up in the morning, home late at night, eat dinner, go to bed and get up to do it all again. Oh yeah, there are a few bright spots.....seeing my wife on our one day off together, going to Tai Chi classes, and 2 workouts a week at the Y, but other than that, it's not a lot of excitement for us.

We splurged a couple of weeks ago and headed to the coast for a mini vacation, probably our only time off together until late fall. Pacific Beach was a great getaway. This time of year is the height of the annual northern migration of thousands of birds up the west coast, and the Grays Harbor area is one of the nations greatest stopover points for those birds.

 We relaxed, watched birds, shopped and walked the beaches, getting our exercise walking up the beach for a few miles. And packing spotting scopes and cameras all over the place.  But it was all too short and after a long trip home, it was back to the grind.

Maybe we'll get away again soon...............
