Happy Birthday To Me

A few weeks ago, along with my husband, I celebrated my birthday at one of my favorite places.  My husband surprised me with a trip to the coast.  Here are a few photos of my birthday celebration.

I received a wonderful surprise for my birthday this year.  My husband planned a trip to the coast for a couple of days.

At the end of the trail, a wall separates  public access from private residences.  For the public, the wall does not represent a physical boundary of ownership, but a collective place to visually memorialize loved ones.

After an afternoon running from the waves and watching the various marine mammals catch fish, we headed back to our room to get ready for dinner.
