Today has been one of my very best birthdays ever.
It started with a great swim in my back yard, then indoors for a pre-lunch dessert and tremendously thoughtful gifts, then moved to an oceanfront restaurant for a tasty lunch, followed by my annual haircut (photos in tomorrow's blog post), and who knows what else.
I offer my deepest thanks to everyone who wished me well, and especially to my magnificent husband without whom my life would have little meaning.
Doug and I had another fantastic outing with our hiking club today and visited waterfalls we've never seen before. We even swam through a large pool to take our turns receiving invigorating waterfall massages.
Finally! We had mostly gorgeous clear water for our ocean swim this morning - and it is even warming up a bit. Hooray.
Bruce's cousin was hanging out at the treadmill, so we didn't get to swim with her for long; but one of our turtle friends kept right up with us for quite a while (until we finally tired her out and she had to drop back).
I'm a guy who likes to get out into the ocean several times each week and interact with the creatures I encounter there. I often swim with dolphins, sharks, rays, and whales. Check out my photos on my website: www.TropicalLight.com
