Lovely way to get my head around the day ahead.

Jenise, living that close to the water, do you get much wind? How about corrosion from the salt air on your house or outdoor stuff such as grills, etc. When we lived in Eureka, just a few blocks from Humboldt Bay, that was a problem. My folks lived in Cambria, so close to the ocean that is kept us awake at night. They did not have any problems but folks who lived just a few blocks closer had a terrible maintenance issue, especially with windows.
Your views are to be envied, as I sit here looking outside at birds fighting for space at the water fountain just outside my bedroom window. It is 107°. Expected to climb to 110° by Saturday. Enjoy your coolness! :(

Breakfast would never suck with a view like that!

Aaaahhhhhh. Absolutely gorgeous Jenise. I have to ask though...what is your breakfast? It looks to me like a delicious stack of Tollhouse Cookies, but I know better than that!
Hello. My name is Carrie, and I...I....still like oaked Chardonnay. (I feel so much better now.)

You were right, tollhouse cookies. These were made with Ghirardelli's 70% cocoa chips and walnuts. I'm not much of a sweet eater but I used less sugar in these than most recipes call for, and they make a good morning tea biscuit. Tea+cookies works for me, btw, but somehow not coffee. It was just a way of putting something in my tummy, and I plated enough for Bob to share as he would join me shortly. But my post wasn't about the cookies, just the serenity of that view and a warm, sunny, still morning without another human in sight.

First of all, 107 is beyond awful. I moved here to get away from temps like that, much as I might trade places with you in a few months. But yes, a lot of wind. our house is south facing and the storms that come here in winter are usually blowing straight north, so we get whammed. In the summer of course the wind's gentler, blowing cool air into the house on hot days better than any air conditioner could do. So corrosion is a serious issue but had the same problem in Huntington Beach and we are used to dealing with it. Certain things will rot faster here, but it's worth it.

I honestly can't think of anything I'd rather have for breakfast. That stack would be perfect for me alone. It wouldn't be enough to share.
