GIFT DAY 043: whew, what a day!

12 Feb

We left the icicles of Westford today to return to our little beach house.

icicles, jamie eslinger, the promise 365, thepromisedaily.com
Who knew the beach could be so exciting in winter?
There have been days of pure gorgeous sunlight bouncing off the waves.There have been amazing sights and sounds, including the swan that frequently visits (I think we should name him!)…To the neighborhood dogs that roam the beach for their daily walk.

The all the HEART ROCKS we’ve been searching for…

There have been snow storms, hurricanes, Nor’easters, and now… a record setting BLIZZARD.

Who knew it would be so fun?
Now that we are back at the house, I am so happy we did NOT stay to watch all the action.I would have been terrified to watch the ocean tear the front stairs off the house.I would have cried myself or wet myself — or both.

As much as I learned last year about being FEARLESS, this is just one activity I didn’t need to participate in — especially since we had a choice.

And, don’t we always? Usually?  Most of the time?Here’s a few before and after shots from the house tonight.

    Was wondering if you’d go back today. No power? Except the power you give, even without steps!

      Yes, we are back! It’s a mess over here, but the house is still standing 😉 The beach is all torn up, rocks everywhere. The sand and debris are in the road. I’ll take photos today in the daylight. Whew!
