I was working in the galley this evening getting dinner ready for the troops, relaxing with the roll of the swell, listening to the screams of the Boardwalk, watching the pelican's dive bomb and I realized how lucky I am. How many get such an amazing view outside their kitchen window when they are cooking? Not too many!
This morning as we were toodling into the harbor on the dinghy we saw a mama sea otter and her pup, some harbor porpoises and a few pacific white-sided dolphins. Keith takes every moment to explain some nuance or another to the boys, whether it's about whales, baleen and the size of their esophagus (this mornings topic) or migration patterns of sea lions...the kids suck it all up. How many get to have a sea life adventure with a biologist geek every day? Not too many!
So I'm feeling pretty lucky. In my husband and my lifestyle and my kids that go along for the ride. It's all an adventure!
