May Date Day

Oh, we had the best day.  
It was our May date, kayaking for the two of us.
We picked what might have been the only Tuesday of the entire year we were both home to take advantage of Tuesday's two for one deal.  
It was a cold and very wet morning, dark as can be when we set out on our first adventure kayaking.
The ocean water was salty and and calm in the inlet at Rocky Point.  
We paddled to the seals who floundered about on a pad of logs and swam in and out of the water.  
A little puppy face popped up right near Shane's boat and tagged a long as we rowed away.
We glided through the rain a few kilometers past factories of sulphur and shuffling trains.
We used our two hours to enjoy our perspective from down on the water.
When we got back to shore my hands were very cold.

bowls full of ice cream (with chocolate shell of course)

short walks between the rains
lots of visits with family
very stressful exam week for Shane

Howdy folks!
I'm gearing up for an insane weekend at the moment.
I've got two more nights of work before the madness starts.
