Sunday by the Sea

Yesterday morning we went to Sunday Brunch at the Marine Room with Jerry's brother John and his wife Diane. Although they offer the convenience of valet parking, we chose to drive up the street, park, and have a scenic walk down to the restaurant. Jerry and John are walking just ahead of us there on the road, and on the right some folks are just getting ready for a dive.

There is a path with beach access right next to the Marine Room. When the tide is very high, as it was yesterday morning, the water comes right up to the windows and it feels like you are on a boat.

After breakfast we went down to the boardwalk and walked along the beach. Lots of people were surfing, going in for diving, and taking kayak lessons. This colorful pile of kayaks caught my eye.

By this time the tide had moved back out. It was a beautiful day, sunny and not foggy at all.

In the afternoon, our husbands went off to a football party and Diane and I had a pleasant afternoon in the sewing room. When Jerry and John came back in the evening, we sat by the fire and sipped our wine. A lovely end to a lovely day.

I've spent many years' summers at that was "our" hang out...haven't been to the Marine room in ages...I always love the waves coming up to the windows. It's a pretty cool place, from either side of the windows! =-) Enjoy this winter we're having!

O my gosh, is the Marine Room still there? I went there in the early 70s. (I used to live in San Diego.)

We have been having amazing weather too. Great beach weather. Which doesn't often happen in these parts.

Good for you for walking the distance and not using valet parking!
