Mother's Day Celebration

Mother's Day Celebration

Every year for Mother’s Day, the kids treat me to a special  getaway celebration--to Pacific Beach on the Oregon coast.  There we collect mussels (a favorite) for dinner.  We also enjoy tide pooling, beach combing, and whale watching.  On occasion we have sighted a pod of gray whales swimming in the deep waters close to shore.  While rolling about they wave to us with a flipper or fluke, then suddenly and effortlessly hurl their massive bodies far out of the water--no doubt to show off.  I’m always impressed!  A full day of family fun, ended with a scrumptious mussel dinner--it can’t get any better!  I can hardly wait for next Mother’s Day!
