Wednesday:) When The Vacation’s Over

Well, I’m back home in beautiful steamy McKinney, Texas. It’s after 9pm and I asked Google what the temp is, and she said “The current temperature in McKinney is 91, but with the humidity it feels like 99.” Also, my AC was acting up before I left, and I made my Joplin’s AC appointment for Friday because I have Art Club in the morning. I had the AC set at 86 while I was gone, and it said 86 when I got home, OK, I turned it down to 80, and over the next few hours the readings went up instead of down. It’s blowing air, but now the thermostat reads 88. It doesn’t feel that warm, but maybe the thermostat is wonky? I’ll survive. So, back to my vacation,.,

Yesterday was my last day in beautiful Venice CA where the evening and early morn temps were around 68 and daytime in the 70’s. Matt had to work most the day, it asked what I wanted to do for my last evening. I said, “I want to put my feet in the ocean.” Now, that’s one big step for mankind! All my friends and family know that I’m afraid of water. But, you can’t go to the ocean and not walk by the ocean.

TA-da!

When a small wave rushed up by my ankles, I got nervous and walked further away. But, we did walk along the shore for a while, until the sun started setting. It was beautiful.

I took so many nice pictures that will make beautiful references for watercolor paintings.

Then, I wrote my name in the sand and watch the water come in and wash it away. Cool!

Matt then took me for my last vacation vegan dinner in California. A perfect end to a perfect visit with my California boy.

Thanks for the pick up at the airport Lynne. It’s so nice to have wonderful friends. Zelda took me to DFW and Lynne picked me up. I’m a nervous traveler, so having a friend give me a ride always calms my nerves. We’re so busy talking, I don’t have time to get nervous.

Happy Wednesday my friends. It’s good to be home. It’s sad to be home. I can always start planning my next trip.
