Coastal Runs, Drives, and Eats Before Returning Home

I’m back in Wyoming with Patient Husband and all the critters.  So let’s catch up.  On Monday, I went out for another run, 3-1/2 miles, stopping to take pictures so you could see my views.

Then when I got back, it was coffee time.



It was such a nice day, I  took the pups for a short ride along the coast because I could tell they wanted to.

It was my last evening, so we went for a fantastic dinner at Georgies.   Stuffed Flounder – do I need to say more?

It was tough leaving.  The next time I will be there, it will be baby time!

Some ‘welcome home’ photos.

This morning, I woke to double-digit wind speeds.   I had to take the Labradoodles to the new groomer, at 9 so I thought I’d run a trail while off the mountain.

I headed out of the trailhead – uphill. The wind smacked me straight on.  I kept trying, honest I did.  But the wind….

It was exactly like this.  Well, except there were no palm trees or water…

I pushed for just 1-1/2 miles.  When I got back in the car – it was actually rocking from the wind.   (I am really trying hard to get you to understand, aren’t I?)

After lunch it was time to pick up the doodles.  They are so soft and fluffy and of course, wearing the compulsory pink bows and bandana.


Jack and Jill seem to be discussing something very serious.


I came across this picture the other day.  Do you realize there is actually a place that sells donuts stuffed with ice cream????

I’m not sure if I will have dreams or nightmares about these……

Enjoying the Coast, Running Again, and Making Mountains

It’s a been a busy few days.  Our first day together my daughter, Amanda, and I set out to shop or at least window-shop for some necessary items.  Things like a high chair, a carseat, as well as some painting supplies.  We’ve both been looking forward to getting the nursery ready.

First thing Friday morning, we were preparing to start our big project.

First, we decided to use tape to get a general idea.   Sure, no problem.

And then the painting began:

And the final touches to the mountain mural were done by supper time.

There must be bears in the mountains.

We were very proud of ourselves if I do say so myself.

Miko spent a lot of time supervising.

We’ve had beautiful weather since I’ve arrived and except for one day, when  I set the alarm for 7:00 PM, I’ve been out for a run.  I can’t help but stop and take pictures.   I’ve been treated to some beautiful rides along the coast.

Sunday we took a ride with the top down.

Even Ruthy was excited.

We took a hike on the beach hunting for pelicans.  No pelicans this time, but lots of other cool things as well as some seals sunning themselves.



But after all that hiking, those short legs got very tired.  (Ruthy’s not Amanda’s)

And I was finally allowed to take a picture of the three of them.

I hope your weekend has been fun too.  Are you able to take advantage of nice weather, or are the spring storms keeping you in?  Keep walking – even if its just a little.
