80 Degree Bragging Rights
The weather today in the Greater Seattle Area was marvelous, 80+ degrees (nothing, I realize my California/Arizona friends and family would find all that amazing)! We went downtown near the marina for some beach time. It became increasingly obvious as we tripped across the waterfront that I had dressed E and myself all wrong; her in a long sleeved turtleneck w/sweater and rain boots and me in my smartwool socks (to my credit it has, in the last few weeks been deceptively springlike upon gazing out the window, only to find it snowing hours later)! Thankfully I remembered an old sun hat I had stashed in the jogger from last season, but no sunscreen, so we endured the heat.
It was warm, dare I say hot with little breeze. This proved to not be ideal kite flying weather, and after trying for a while with her dad E resigned herself to tossing rocks into the water and digging holes.
* You, dear reader can expect many more beach-going posts to come this summer as nothing really proves to be more relaxing than sitting under an umbrella with good friends and watching the kids amuse themselves at the shore. Sigh. Summer come quickly.
