I am deeply grateful to my husband for his inexhaustible patience last night , as he spent 4 hours with me in front of the computer, deciphering code and trying to figure out why my site is being shown as an "Obsolete Feed" on some of my loyal follower's, blog rolls.
That was not fun, and we were both cross-eyed by the time we finished studying the extremely dull, detailed html script that makes this blog run.
We may have fixed the problem. But maybe not! Please let me know if there is still an error code or other such wording showing in your reader or blog lists. You can email me, or leave the info in a comment. I will not rest until this problem is repaired 100%!
(I've been trying to get some support from Blogger help forum but 6 days later I still haven't heard a word from them...)
In the meantime,
Would you like to take a walk on the beach with me?
There's so much to be grateful for living here along the coast.
I'm grateful for these bright red umbrellas, they make me smile when I look at them.
We had breakfast at the harbor, sitting outside under one, early in the morning.
Then Miss Maggie took us for a walk.
We went down to the end of the point to inspect the lighthouse, and to feel the spray of the waves on our faces.
I'm grateful for this handsome lighthouse. I think it adds so much character and romance to this beach and the harbor.
We climbed up, and over, and all around the gigantic cement "jacks" that were used to create the breakfront for the harbor.
They weigh many tons apiece, and fit together like a puzzle .
At one point these bare-chested, sadly out-of-shape, scraggly, unattractive beach boys jogged by.
I hardly noticed them.
I hardly noticed them when they ran back the other direction, as well.
I'm not even sure why I took this picture.
I believe I was trying to get a shot of the boardwalk in the distance.
Those bare-chested boys just happened to be there at the same time.
I'm pretty sure they got in my picture by accident.
Maggie didn't seem all that interested. She was making sure not to get too close to the waves. Maggie is not a water lover.
She does, however, enjoy chasing kites that are high in the sky.
I'm thankful for days that are breezy enough to fly a kite.
After a walk I love sitting for awhile, watching the waves and running my hands and toes through the warm sand. I'm grateful for another perfect morning!
Breakfast outside under red umbrellas, and walking along the beach with my family and a little dog, are moments I am thankful for.
Thanks for stoppping by!
Until next time,
