..and just enjoyed it so much. Can't understand why I don't do things like that more often, but I am invited down tomorrow, same time same place. I met a nice fellow, 72, that says he and his friends spend every "good weather" day they can, down at that spot. I'm loading up a video I shot for you all. It was really beautiful and thought you might like to see it ;) I'll attach it below. I think I rode about 6 miles round-trip, but I haven't checked the mileage yet. Ok, looks almost 10 miles, lol! Mostly flat so not a hard ride ;) Here's the video, finally got it uploaded:

What a beautiful and funny video. You have a delightful sense of humor! "I put the bike together myself. I heard a loud clang so I guess something fell off. But it kept going so I'm not going to worry about it"...AND..."I guess that's a woman out there. I thought they were all guys when they were on shore, but you know how that goes."...AND..."If a boogeyman comes to get me he'll be sorry cause I can be the boogeyman". 🤣

Amazing!

I would spend all of my time perched on a rock watching the water!
We've been pretty lucky this year with the good weather. It can be overcast a lot of the time, but the beach is fun to be at even when it's foggy. We have quite a few tourists, and locals that fill that beach some days ;)

I remember a story I heard when I was a little girl, The Ransom of Red Chief?? It was hilarious because if I remember right, the kidnappers had to pay the parents to take him back :LOL: I will be going again today so will get more vids Holly, and stills. I was amazed at my phones battery, after shooting so much video (I did a couple others as well) it still had 77% when I got home!
This one is to @terry123 , the quote thingy didn't work :(
I will wear something today I can go in the water with ;) Maybe I'll get to sit on my "first ever" surf board :LOL:

yeah, it can be scarey the things that travel through my brain to my mouth, but that one was luckily, "family friendly" :cool:;)

Yes @Kimwhiz I was just telling my sister on Messenger about it and was saying how hard it can be to get motivated to do that, but when I do, it's like "look what all I've been missing" ;)

Same here. I have such a hard time getting myself up and moving. Since I don’t have to be anywhere, I usually end up reading a lot in the house. I’ve been forcing myself to get out and about and it makes a huge difference in my mood. Keep it up girl, you’re on a roll now. 😄

I so get that, same here basically. I'll do what I have to do, or get done, then I come home again. I complain about no one to go with me, but I don't get out to meet those that are "getting out" LOL!! Larry, the guy I met at the beach is at least 72 because he told me he'd lived in Crescent City on and off for 72 years ;) And he was a gentleman, and didn't squeeze my hand when I introduced myself (what a concept). But he and the other guys go down to that same spot often, so now I met some peeps!

thanks gals, I'm down for the count today. I think I'm paying for my "outdoor" fun with a bad case of allergies. I didn't get any film last night at the beach, and I really didn't stay long. Maybe a half hour. This is when I really appreciate my lack of responsibilities, I mean when I feel so bad I just want to cuddle up with my shows on Roku, or read.

I'm thinking real serious about getting allergy shots. My doc has offered but I just am really unsure about them. I'm not going to make another thread on that so if anyone wants to give me feedback that have used the allergy shots successfully, please feel free. I've never had them that I recall anyway, the shots. But I am suffering more now than I ever have and I just don't know why.

Anyway, sorry I'm not very funny today, but I do hope you are all doing good. I'll be back when I feel a little better.

I never had allergies Denise, so I don't know about shots. But I do hope you feel better!
