When I was a teenager we made a trip to FL and I was amazed at the Atlantic ocean... just frolicked right out there, like it was a bathtub or something. The beach water I grew up around runs mid-60s in the summer, and don't even ask in the winter. I went swimming on Easter break one year and quickly had feet that were *numb*. So Cal is famous for temperate sunny weather, but that cold ocean current will get your attention! We did have water temps in the low 70s a couple summers ago and everyone blamed global warming

On the other hand I visited Ireland and saw surfers there in the Atlantic. In OCTOBER, people. Can we all say 7mil wetsuit? Along with the surfers there was a man who rode his horse down the city streets to the beach, worked with the horse there for quite a while, then headed back into town. Must be nice!

DJ* - how was dinner with your stepdad?

Like everyone else my head is spinning trying to keep up with everything... still sneaking a sketch in here and there though, gotta stay sane somehow. For now a general Howdy to all!

I take great comfort in knowing that my genuine typos will probably be blamed on some device's autocorrect.

Ron, we are going to schedule the moving van for June 18. Guy will fly out to meet it and then fly back to me. We will live in our trailer until closing in order to take care of the house. It is all so difficult we are just circling the wagons and hanging together. We will stay in the trailer park until we find or build our next home.

Jo, I love the sign, it will be a welcome and good for you to face the lake.

CK, the trouble with the warmer water, it can breed bacteria. In Florida we get red tide at times, it kills fish and you can't swim in the water then.

Linda, it must be great to have a sister that paints out, do you ever paint out together? I love the technique of using just transparent paint and glazing. I did it on my Hawaii painting, I will show the sequence in my blog when I move and have time.
