Beach Lessons

And we're back from a short week away at Sauble Beach... I would have loved it if it was a full week, but we had commitments, so we came back early. Saying that 'we had commitments' makes me feel important... and sad because the beach was glorious indeed. And lest you think I did nothing this last while except for lie in the sand and frolic in the water, I will share what I learned while I was away. Because the learning never stops around here... (A few of these pics are repeats from Instagram... follow me at myeditblog to get up to the minute coverage. Maybe not quite up to the minute though...)

I learned that you can get over sleeping in the bed that is too short for you, as long as there is poorly applied, very awesome Rocky Mountain wallpaper in your bedroom. Though I already knew this from the last time we stayed here.

I learned that my nephew, at the tender age of 8 months, is already getting fresh with the ladies.

I (or should I say, we) learned that dollar store tattoos of the Canadian flag are easier to apply than to remove.

I learned that even though I have jumped Sauble Falls (it looks scarier in the picture than it is...) for years, I always need to hold someone's hand.

I learned I will always stop to take a picture of a nice sunset; even if there has been a glorious sunset for the past 5 days. Pausing to Instagram a sunset, is the new stopping to smell the roses...? (Also... that is my mama and papa waving in the picture. Cute, eh?)

I learned that Matt loves me. Well, I already had reason to suspect he did but when he went to run some errands and came back with the best cat towel ever, my suspicions were confirmed. Honestly, I was impressed.

I learned that I love sparklers almost as much as I hate Matt's shirt. But seeing as he bought me that cat towel, the shirt is suddenly forgiveable. I pick my battles.

AWESOME time in Sauble Beach!

I'm still in awe at your falls-jump photo!! SO BRAVE!! How deep is the water when you jump in!!??

Awesome news about the cat towel, and yes, I'd agree, stopping to Instagram IS the new stopping to smell the roses.

You were in my dream last night. We met somewhere between MI and Canada and went shopping :)

I spent the summers of my childhood up at Sauble, but haven't been back in years, sadly. I was thinking about going this weekend, but I heard rumours of water quality issues. Guess that wasn't the case - I should have just gone!

Leaping into that waterfall looks terrifying! It may not be that high, but aren't there rocks down under? Were you being safe? xoxo, a concerned blogger.
