Happy Birthday Jean!

Today is Jean’s birthday and we are celebrating at one of her favorite places, the Pacific Ocean beaches of western Washington. Happy Birthday!

A morning walk in 40 mph winds is a brisk beginning to the day. There are birds, grasses, flotsam, and wonderful flurries of spindrift whipped from the waves by the wind.

This is our home for the week – Worldmark Long Beach. We’ve been here many times and settled in quickly.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Happy Birthday, Jean. I remember your years in Grayland, and how much you loved living at the beach even if it meant a 50-mile roundtrip to Aberdeen to pick up the mail!

      It was a magical time. I remember your first visit there when you slept away the afternoon in the corner. No sleeping in the middle of the day on your subsequent visits, though. The mayhem of family visits for long holiday weekends were too noisy for that:)
