Cooler by a Mile

Watching the flags over Hoy’s 5 & 10 from my office- a definite south breeze!  Avalon and Stone Harbor offer the best seats in the house during a heatwave 😎

Volunteers will receive a logo shirt, plus witness a fun event!

Please let me know if you are available to help:  ann.delaney@timkerrsir.com

Friendly Birds

We all know the seagulls have no fear of humans.  In fact, they will boldly steal your sandwich at the beach if you are not hiding under an umbrella or towel!

Recently I noticed that a few of the resident oyster catchers are no longer skittish as I walk by.  They have acclimated to sharing the water’s edge 😎

Father’s Day

popThis day is bittersweet for many of us.

My father was just a few years older than I am now when he passed away.

And even after 25 years, the sorrow can quickly rise to the surface.

Yet, I’m so grateful for the gift of watching our 2 sons raise their boys…and my husband  as their “Pop”.

Beach Walkers

It’s so nice to see the “regulars” back on the beach for my early morning walks.  Although I casually know a few, for the others I have to make up my own back story.

Recently, I was able to complete the story of a sweet older gentleman because of a random Twitter post.

His grandson wrote a tribute in May- and I recognized the fellow walker from the attached family picture.

Read the Twitter thread here:  Stone Harbor Tweet

In the summer months, we would pass each other on the sand, and smile or wave hello.  In more recent years, I only saw him when my walks detoured to the street, and I guessed that the sand had become too challenging .

The small world connections are the best part of Twitter and my blog!

Senior Week?

Every year, a few well meaning parents and grandparents allow their high school or college graduates to stay at their beach house…with “just one or two friends”.

Ultimately, the friends multiply along with the noise level!

A small cottage near our home is maxed out with young people who stay up WAY past our bedtime 😉

Thankfully, they were respectful when we mentioned this concern and agreed to keep their music to a low roar.

Hopefully a mellow Saturday night ahead 😁
