Vacation Ends.........With another Great Run!

  • First slight more pondering over my half.......My long runs have been abysmally slow............so my half was actually rocket fast!  Plus it gives me something to improve in my next 3 halves this spring - hopefully - maybe ?

  • I ate way too much for the past few days including a whoopie pie or two. Most of these came home to my husband and son.

  • Getting away is good but coming home is even better.

  • When I was running I spent time reading the names of houses.  I have never named my house but I guess you name vacation houses as you do boats.  My favorite was "Someday" Happened.  It also happens to be right on the cliff I want my house on.  

  • I bought stuff for everyone in my family.  My son made out the best. I will post pictures later......the shopping edition for those of you who care.  Those who don't just scroll on by!

  • I am exhausted.  Even a short vacation is tiring.

This is the ocean coming in across the beach.  
One of the many things that fascinates me about the
winter ocean.  Below - it makes a thin ice
covering you need to cross.

  • I had one more splendid run and of course I took some pictures.  The best part of my trip was the running, hands down.
I was trying not to get the sun. Oh well.

Can you say ostentatious?

Yesterday completely hard packed sand....today this.

Lots more ice today.

Kate, I am not worthy of following you as I didn't
even want to go across this simple bridge.

And more ice.

  • Tomorrow I will give my foot a break and swim.  I am really looking forward to it.  Yes, I am.  Really.

Maybe you should wrap your son's present up in a lot of layers to keep it safe. It isn't an elephant, is it??

You're so funny...those bridges scare me! My friends always make fun of me for being such a chicken. If they had it their way, I'd have to change my blog name to "Careful Kate".

Beautiful beach pictures! I'm so glad you had a good vacation. :)

Ostentatious indeed!

Someday Happened is a great name for a house. Actually, it's more of a story.

Did all those Whoopies make it home?

Fran said...

I had to laugh that you are tired from your vacation. Sweety the whole point of a vacation is that you come home energized and rested :)

And I totally agree: getting away is fun but coming home is better.

Beautiful pics.

Sounds like a great vacation - but I do know what you mean about it being tiring! Enjoy your swim!

Johann said...

Nothing beats coming home. Lovely photos! I have never seen Ice on a beach. Have a good week!

So the ostentatious one wasn't 'Someday Happened?" :D
What a great trip--love the pics. Enjoy some pool time for me as well. It's as close as I'll get!

Love the name someday happened for the house! My mom named their boat 'wildest dream' because she never imagined they would own one.
Thanks for sharing all the photos!

Laura said...

Black Knight said...

What a great trip and what a great place to run.
Those whoopies look delicious, the right fuel for your next swim.

Marlene said...

Bringing home presents is always fun!

Looks like an absolutely gorgeous place to visit. I'm behind on posts - need to scroll down to read about your race!

Darlene said...

Love your pics. As far as your hm time, I think you are too hard on yourself but then again I'm slow. Whoopie pies...yeah!

Liz said...

I've never actually seen ice in the sea, it's a strange concept to me. Great photos.

Giorgio said...

Nice photos! It's easy to see that you had a great vacation|
