Seaside

Feed the Seals

One reason I'm still getting up fairly early while on "vacation" is so that I can accomplish enough on my Day Jobbe to be able to have the late afternoon to myself. Yesterday, Lisa and I strolled down to the Seaside Aquarium, which we've seen for years on our past visits but never found the the time to visit.

We would have stayed a bit longer, but my phone beeped to remind me of a late-afternoon conference call about which I'd forgotten. Fortunately, it gave me enough notice that we had time to swing by Zinger's Ice Cream (open Thursday-Sunday only) and walk back to the condo with plenty of time for me to set up for the call, which turned out to have been canceled anyway.

The Aquarium was entertaining, and worth between one and two hours of your time, I think, if you're inclined toward such fishy exhibits. I found the seal-feeding to be fun, too. Try to come on an off-peak day as we did to avoid crowds.

On The Beach

Yesterday evening after dinner, I took a walk on the beach; the first time I've been down there since we got here despite it being just outside our front lawn here.

I put in more than 14,500 steps yesterday, which probably explains why I slept so well last night.
