Anniversary / Babymoon

September 21st was our seventh wedding anniversary(!) and to celebrate we spent the weekend at a beach house on the coast. Below is the view from our verandah and just behind us is an enclosed full size hot tub with the same amazing view. Oh, and in case you're wondering, that's cherry juice in my wine glass :)

We had a really nice walk on the beach when we first arrived and were fascinated by this cuttlefish we found as we'd never seen one before. Some gentle prodding revealed that it was full of ink, lots of eggs and an undigested fish!

Unbelievably enough, we were up the next morning for sunrise and got these great shots before having our first breakfast of the day and then going back to bed.

I've always wanted to paint my nice round belly so Brian got to be the artist and created this cool design. The little red thing on what was once my belly button is the baby surrounded by us on either side. I really like this photo even though I look like somewhat of giantess :)

Not sure yet what the plant below is called but we'd never seen anything like it - it towered above our heads and nearly reached the second floor of the house.

And to top it all off, we saw dolphins in the bay on Monday when we were packing up to leave. Not the best photo but so nice to see, I just had to include it.

So, a lovely weekend was had by all. We'll celebrate again when the harvest moon appears on October 4th and roll out the Neil Young. Crazy to think that it's been just the two of us for over eight years now and in five weeks there will be three of us....


  1. Wow. Terrific pictures.

  2. Your weekend sounds AMAZING!!! So glad to hear that things are going well!
