CoViD-19: San Diego Average Daily Cases At 99.8 Over Last 7 Days | Spring Cleaning | Dog Beach |


Ficus at OB Dog Beach (Taken 5.23.21)

Today was a very chill Sunday. To be honest, I was having very detailed interesting dreams so I stayed asleep in the quiet of my bed a few more hours than I intended...a road trip through California, some bouldering and hiking, my cat making friends with bunnies...that gave the day an aura of lingering peacefulness once I did finally get up and out of bed. 

Darren wanted to go to OB, the dog beach side of the channel across from the jetty we had accessed on Saturday, and so in spite of it being a little cold and windy for the beach, we obliged, with Ficus happy to splash around and me trying not to imagine just how dirty the water in that channel probably is. 

But it was so joyful. We were mostly away from other people but dozens marched by, with each of their dogs trying to instigate play with Fi or coming over to me on our beach mat to say hi, see if I had treats, or generally shake off all their sand and water all over me. It's probably not the best idea to take my camera for such occasions but sometimes I can't resist. I've also been seeing so many people posting on socials about car breakins at popular hiking and beach spots around the county that once I've committed to taking my backpack out of the house, it doesn't leave my site once we park and go for whatever walk or excursion we have planned. 

I did eventually go in the water which was so low tide that you could go 20 feet from the shore and still be knee deep, so we just kinda sat in it like it's a hot tub until the sun hid behind some clouds to steal any warmth. It was nice. 

I know that life is slowly getting back to pre-pandemic normal in many ways, but since I had a mostly WFH situation in the first place, I fully intend to keep visiting all of these pretty little spots that we always know are there but sometimes forget to take advantage of. Because of that I didn't see anything particularly newsworthy to share today. I can't stop thinking about the 6 year old boy killed on an LA freeway, a road rage shot from behind that went through the trunk twice and through his carseat killing him as his mother realized what happened and held him in her arms as he died. It's too much. So many things feel like they're looking up and then something like that can still happen out of nowhere, all the more reason to hold family even closer and enjoy a beautiful day while we can. Also, watch Eurovision 2021 on Peacock, frequently employing the fast forward button. OMG. 

Stay safe out there.
