Vacation Day 6….A walk down the harbor and beach.

Went to the Oceanside Harbor. It is a neat place. didn't get many pics of it. It has several shops and restaurants. there is also a beach and we walked the beach once again. 🙂

People out in the cold water and swim suits, sun-bathing in March...not heard of where I'm from.... It hit about 78 here yesterday (Saturday, March, 3).

Beside all the bird out on the water, Saturday is a great day for sailing, boating and fishing.

Walked down to the jetty and talk about mussels. These things just covered the rocks and layer upon layer of mussels. I spotted other creatures also. 🙂

MORE MUSSELS ALONG THE JETTY.

How sweet a heart. The mussels send their love to you also. 😀

Wanna see what this white crane is looking at and trying to get. I'll show ya.

This crab is tucked under the rock, digging its self in the sand. He is the biggest crab I have seen...besides one you might find on my plate. It is about 5 inches across its shell and the claws are almost as big as the top shell. If I could have, I would have tried to take it home for dinner. I was scared to death it'd have me for its dinner. I watched a couple of them go after eachother...so I'll let someone else get the 'critter' and boil it. What you are looking at is its tail end...its claws are digging it in the sand.

Another crab and a star-fish...sea-star clinging to the side of the rock.

This star-fish has only 4 appendages. He is hug. He is about 16 - 18 inches across. I laid my arm down by it and it went from my finger tip to just about my elbow. I've never seen one that big. Yes it was alive so it stayed.

This one was almost as big as the other but about 3-4 inches shorter, about half my hands length.

A pelican watchin' a fisherman...hahaha...someone may get robbed...hahaha!

A squirrels watches just a few rocks down the way.

Ending another great day with another awesome sunset....Only Our God could paint such a picture as this.

Vacation Day 5…Relaxing with my husband.

Walking along the beach. My husband just ahead of me. I am "Miss Pokie." I like to see what kind of "treasures" I might find washed up on the shore.

An empty beach....tooo cool! A quiet stroll down the beach with my husband. Sweet!

A wonderful days end with a glorious sunset and watching another sail boat sail away into the sunset. One day we shall be caught up in the clouds, no need to sail off into the sunset. What a day that will be O Lord, what a most glorious day.

Psalms 36:5-11
Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. 6 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast. 7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. 8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. 9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. 10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart. 11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.

Lord how good You are. I am so spoiled by You and my husband. i say You have spoiled me because, I am so blessed to have an amazing husband to love and spoil me. Lord You blessed me with this man over 36 years ago. You blessed me as I dated him through my four years of highschool. You blessed me as I walked down the aisle with him 32 years ago, coming this May…just a few months away. Lord I praise You. I am so grateful for all You have given and taken away. You have given more life to me as things are being taken from me. I am honored, You loved me enough to take away so that You could create what You desire in me.   

I want to give honor to the Lord Jesus in all I do. I could not have taken this trip without Him. The Lord is blessing us everyday. He just doesn’t bless me because I am able to take a great vacation or have a wonderful husband, but because He plainly loves me at home and away from home. Thank You Lord. Thank You.

I am glad to have you sit with me for a short time today. Trusting I will chat with you agin soon. Lord bless you as you look unto Him for all you do as you seek Him. God’s grace is amazing and His hope is overwhelming.
