Cousins in town remind us, everyday is a beach day. Dolphins all day. Pelicans gliding mere inches over the cresting waves, so graceful in an awkward body. Blimp sighting with a message to buy vodka. Clear drive over Kanan Dume with the mountains in bloom, everything plump and green from the recent rains, punctuated with the bright yellow blossoms of Prince's Plume. Smiles that start from the bottom of your feet and bubble up and explode, one after another.
