A Quiet Day...

After spending a couple of days unpacking, sorting/cleaning, buying groceries and needed supplies, Paul and I decided to have a "down day" yesterday. That meant no chores!

We spent the late morning sitting out on our balcony in the sun (with our jackets on) enjoying our coffee, listening to the ocean and reading.

In the afternoon we treated ourselves to a long walk on the beach, enjoying the warmth of the sun and looking for seashells. We only found a few shells but that's okay as we have lots of time to look. This little shore bird among the seagulls was very cute.

I had planned to cook dinner for us but Paul suggested that since it was a "down day" I shouldn't have to cook and more importantly he shouldn't have to clean up - which is the way we work in our kitchen. I agreed, so we went to one of our favourite restaurants from last year, The Gulf Stream. This restaurant is located on the waterway and most evenings you can enjoy an awesome sunset while having dinner, which we did last night.

The remainder of my evening was spent reading my book, while Paul watched a very slow moving Clint Eastwood western on TV.
