The captain has been going to the ocean to build on the beach cabin and he is more and more relunctant to leave. He is loving beach time and living slow. This weekend we met him there. It was Rod Run weekend so Long Beach was packed with revving engines and hollering people. We could hear them kicking up their heels late into the night. A friend needed us to pick up his crab pots so we got out on the ocean with the little girls for a bit. It was Jessie’s first time out and the ocean promptly rocked both of them deep to sleep. A whale surprised us by breaching right next to the boat and the seals swam along side of us. There is just something about that ocean.
