Today, we spent our morning playing at Ocean Beach because the weather was sunny and warm, which is very unusual for California’s November weather. I found out that every Saturday morning, there is a dog meet up for the small-medium sized pooches, so we decided to join in on the fun. Besides, it’s a great way to socialize and exercise your dog! If you’re in the area and want somewhere to take your dog, visit this site for more information.
Maui had tons of sandy fun. She’s such a monster and got sand all over herself!
I’ve never seen Ocean Beach this blue and clear in my whole life. Usually when you head to this beach, it’s cold, windy, and overcast. …but not today! The locals were sunbathing in November, and the surfers were out playing in the double over head waves! Too bad we were not prepared to jump in and go surfing today. Perhaps, next time.
After the beach, we drove around the city just enjoying the beautiful weather. We stopped and walked around the city.
When we got home, we were gardening in the patio and found something that looked like a snake with four tiny legs. We assumed it was a newt, but after researching online, I’ve concluded that it is a California slender salamander (Batrachoseps attenuatus). Ewww! Although it looks icky, we didn’t kill it. We let it go because I’m not one to kill living things; besides, it eats up all the slugs. Bwech! Here is what it looks like:
And now for some scrapping news!!
Like I mentioned before, I was invited to take part in the next couple of challenges with the gals over at ScrapStars as a guest designer. I totally love the latest challenge. It’s all about nicknames: “MAKE A PAGE ABOUT SOMEONE YOU HAVE A NICKNAME FOR, AND USE THAT NICKNAME AS THE PAGE TITLE!” …and so I made a layout about Maui – my little “LoveBug”.
Hope you all love it as much as I do. This was definitely a fun challenge, so if you want to play, head on over to ScrapStars. Players will be entered into a random drawing for some fun stuff, so scrap with us.
Off to figure out what to eat for dinner,
