This is a before shot. This front wall will eventually be green. The ceiling in our main room as large skylights which we really love.
This is a picture of one of the back bedrooms showing the paint color. This back bedroom has toys and our computer. We are actually putting all three boys to sleep in the same room. So far, so good. The baby is even sleeping through the night. Jeff calls their bedroom "the dormitory." I'm just grateful they don't smell like teenage boys yet.
Isn't Captain Tootypants adorable?
These last six are from the beach today. It was really marvelous. The beach here isn't warm, but I'm actually glad of that. It keeps the crowds down and there seems to be less muck growing in the tide pools. People also tend to cover themselves a little better when it is cold! The wind blew sea spray and the sky was flawlessly blue. Just to the north of where we stopped, you can see Haceta Head Lighthouse on a small bluff overlooking the ocean. There is something about the ocean that fills my veins with excitement. Despite the sand and the driving and the sunburns, I feel quite rejuvinated. The sense of so much life teeming just below the surface is exciting to me. I'm reminded that my first true ambition was to be a marine biologist. There was something wonderful in the air that makes me want to write again. I hope too much doesn't pass before I can get back.
