Well with Christmas come and gone, it was time for hubby and I to plan a little get-a-way for our 48th wedding anniversary. We were married on December 30, 1962 in Boise, Idaho - seems just like yesterday. When we were younger it was always a decision every year whether to celebrate our anniversary on the 30th, or celebrate it on the 31st - New Years Eve! Sometimes New Years Eve won out and sometimes the actual date the 30th won out. As we grew older, we certainly either couldn't afford to go out two nights in a row when we were raising a family, and now we're too tired to go out two nights in a row!
This year we chose to go to the Quinault Beach Resort near Ocean Shores, Washington to spend some together time, rejuvenate ourselves and just plain "appreciate each other".
In this first photo, showing 3 inches of snow at our house on Wednesday morning when we left home:
This next photo shows the view from our room on the 3rd floor - note the blue, sunny sky which we had for all 3 days. Cold though - the highs were just about at freezing level and it was quite windy. Good staying inside and knitting weather!
The next two photos were just because I like looking at the ocean.
On Wednesday (anniversary day), we took a drive south to Westport, WA and drove out to the marina area. We stopped in front of a condo for sale, and when getting out of the car, I stepped on the only ice in the entire parking lot and fell grabbing ahold of everything I could get my hands on, on the way down (wasn't pretty). Consequently, I'm now wearing a sling for hopefully just a pulled muscle in the rotator cuff/shoulder area, and limping around with a twisted knee. I have to give them a week to get better or go back for x-rays and further treatment! So that was kind of a damper, but we still had a wonderful time and look forward to our next get-a-way.
I would like to thank all of you who follow my meager blog and wish you and yours a Happy New Year!
