It's been a long weekend for us and one without much internet connection. I can usually find a wifi spot near our condo, but it wasn't working very well this time. Four days with almost no internet is a very long time. Anyway, Cherry Pie and I did a little retail therapy. The sales were pretty good. I got new sneakers, ones that show off the socks.
And of course some yarn. I really like this color. We had to run in and out of the store because all we could find was the 30 minute parking spot. I only went for size 7 circular needles but I couldn't resist more sock yarn.
We went to the beach and the bay but it was a bit chilly. And the water was very cold. But Reese liked it anyway. Even when her teeth were chattering.
Afterwards, Reese and I wrapped up in the clapotis and watched the birds flying over the pier and saw the ferry pull in. Can you see the sandbars in the distance? This is the very end of the Delaware Bay where it meets the ocean and at low tide, the water just disappears. People come here to clam at low tide and they walk out hundreds of yards just to get to the water. And the kids all run around and chase little crabs. You can see tiny crabs and hermit crabs and even starfish up close. Oh and those really ugly horseshoe crabs. There's a barbecue spot just off the beach where everyone cooks their clams and have feasts. We went to Outback.
Oh and I forgot to show you the Mother's Day card BDE got me. She gets the gold star for this one.
I hope all of you had a nice Memorial Day weekend and I hope you took a minute to remember those who died in the service of our country. And if you're not in the U.S., I hope you just had a good weekend.
