Beach walks

Happy Friday everybody! I’m feeling mighty fine lately, maybe its the cloudy weather or maybe its because when you think about it life really is good right now.   All the blessings in life, no matter how small is worth celebrating! I guess I should do a little dance?

On Wednesday we went on a trip down memory lane with Carl’s dad, all around his old stomping ground, telling us cute little stories, showing us where he used to live.  I always thought I had a really great memory, but wow, Carl’s dad is out of this world!

We stopped for a quick walk on the beach, sometimes when you get caught up in the destination you forget to take a breather and just enjoy the moment and beauty of things.  I never forget, I’m pretty sure I must be the most irritating person to travel with, I just want to experience everything! Except heights, sharks or anything where I don’t feel safe! I’m not a crazy person!

^^ This lifeguard doesn’t seem to be taking his job that seriously.

^^ Carl and I felt so bad walking on the shells.  It felt like we were destroying someone’s home just for the fun of it.

^^ I’ve never seen one of these guys ( Blue bottles), but I have heard the horror stories of how the sting of these guys hurts.  I felt really left out as a child, everyone talking about the sting and how horrible it is.

^^ Carl looks really happy with his beach discoveries! On a completely side note, I really hate his glasses, every time it tints up I just see the weird band nerd that no one wants to talk to, because he smells like lady deodorant.

What’s your weekend plans?

First couple of days in Cape Town, South Africa

Its H-O-T, hot, hot, hot here! We’ve been melting from the heat here.  We came in here thinking, oh, its fall, it wont possibly be that hot here.  Boy, were we wrong! on the plus side my hair looks amazing.  The abundance of vitamin D seem to be making my hair shinier by the day! Carl, on the other hand is suffering from a light sunburn.

It’s been fun to walk around a different city, we been drinking water like fiends trying to hydrate as much as possible, thanks to the insane heat, but the skies are bluer than blue and the water looks like a blue carpet with diamonds strewn across it.  Can’t be mad at that!

^^ This little guy was such a little poser.  Maybe he was expecting food?

^^ I don’t know what’s the deal with this ice cream cone, but I like it.

^^ Carl’s beard is growing at record speed again.  The lack of vitamin D in Dublin, made his beard stop growing.  We googled it, its a real thing!

^^ Green juice break.

^^ This sushi was amazing and was at the Food Lovers Eatery.  If you are ever in Cape Town you have to check it out.  They even had Dr Pepper!

^^ I’m not sure what this means, but my guess is that its got something to do with sea point.  You can’t see it in this photo, but their hair connects.
