Oh, and then there's this......I expect great sunsets from this view pretty soon.
After lunch we went out to do a few errands, the most important of which was to buy a turkey breast....there's a holiday coming.
Von's was mobbed! We could hardly move through the aisles and the check out lines were long, so very long. One of the stand up freezer cases was jammed full with huge frozen turkey's, piled willy nilly. Someone opened the door and they all tumbled out, crashing on his toes. An overworked stock boy's solution no doubt.
Everyone must know about this holiday.
Before going back to Beluga for happy hour we drove down into Pacific Beach's funky downtown and took a short walk on Crystal Pier. I love the views from the pier, but not the journey to it's end. There are darling little cottages lining the first part of the way, but the planks on the decking are just far apart enough for me to be able to see the crashing waves far below. I must look down as I walk along the uneven boards so I don't stub my toe and fall, but that results in me seeing how high up we are with every step.....not a happy thing for me.
But I soldier on because of the views and the majesty of the water and the light on the water. And I can't allow myself be such a wimp!
