Molly and I are well prepared for dealing with the stay at home orders, since we are used to living together on a 42 foot boat when we have been cruising on Allegria over the past years. Staying here at our house seems luxurious in space and convenience. Plenty of room, fresh water, a pool to jump in to, a grocery store close by and a wonderful beach to walk on. We are fortunate to have access to the beach which has been closed but where residents are allowed to walk.
We usually try to get out and walk a few miles every day as much for our mental health as our physical health. We see our old friends the plovers scurrying about,
the sandpipers pocking about,
the ubiquitous seagulls,
Pelicans flying in formation,
And Molly's favorite, the Royal Terns, with their punk hairdo's.
We get a chance to renew our relationship with the ocean, the wind and the earth.
The tide comes in, the tide goes out
The sun rises, the sun sets
What a wonderful world
Life goes on
It's great to be alive
