My dear friend Katherine flew in on Thursday night. I took Friday off and after a good sleep in and breakfast in the backyard we went to Seal Beach for an afternoon in the sand.
It ended up being quite a bit sandier then we thought due to the very windy conditions. We started out with the bigger umbrella, but after we lost it once and a young man named Clayton caught it for us we switched to the smaller, earlier to tie down to our bags umbrella. Katherine ventured down to put her feet in the ocean, I didn’t get that close.
Saturday we went walking at Eldorado nature park, my usual walk. Besides a lot of turtles we watched a couple hawks swoop through. One landed right above it and I got this picture although it is hard to see amongst the branches. Katherine captured our 2 mile and then 1 mile loop on her watch app. It made for a pretty cool map of our walk.
Saturday we also went to see the movie Dunkirk. It was a very interesting movie, on the rescue of hundreds of thousands of soldiers from the city of Dunkirk after the German invasion. It isn’t actually a move I had heard about but I found it very captivating.
Katherine also introduced me to Netflix and the show Call the Midwives. I realize “introduce me to Netflix” sounds like I am living under a rock, but the last time I had Netflix was when you got a couple DVD’s in the mail and returned them when you were done and they mailed out the next one on your list. Needless to say, I’m almost through the first season.
