Default There's this beach...!

There's this beach, that when one has had their fill of the "delights" of Cabo they can just fill the cooler with a couple of sandwiches and drinks and spend the day refilling their sense of one.

Not a soul on it but us today, cars went by in the dusty distance but none stopped. I tried my hand at surf casting and the fish won. I lost my best lure to a freekin' rock. Had a lot of fun trying though. I did find a bone of a whale (or a swimming cow) in a rock bathtub with a sandy bottom. Was fun to sit in, every now and then a wave would refill it for us.

Life's a beach, Ken.

And for me , it's good to see warm water and skies. Keep posting those tropical scenes... my blood needs to be thawed.

Looking at the weather Zig and BobB have in store for them I think those photos may count as cruel and unusual punishment. But beautiful photos.

Thanks guys, this is all I'll have to keep me warm soon. We've got flooding back home after the freeze.

We have to go back someday, well, we'll make the first step north on Monday. won't be in any rush though.

I wouldn't hurry if I were you. A lot of the US is in a deep freeze. International Falls, MN, was -31 last night. (F or C, about the same). Lord knows what it was in northern Canada.

Northern Canada here... (more north eastern Canada)... we're bracing for 20cm of snow this afternoon. -11 C wind chill today.

Good shots by the way, warming thoughts on what is a cold day.

On a positive note, I am getting my snowshoes today per tracking services. This means that hopefully will be out on fresh powder tomorrow snapping pics of nature underneath a white blanket (with my son tagging along)!
