Random Adventures

So the other day, Stephen and I had to go to the dealership to have our ( new) car checked out. (Did I mention we have a new car! Cause we do... YAY!) 

This dealership is like half an hour away from our house. Which is annoying, but livable. I mean, its not like I have to drive to the moon or anything. (I hate driving to the moon. It takes forever to get there, and there isn't much too look at.) But it was still a ways away. 

Well, on the way home Stephen said, "Hey look!" And suddenly veered off the road onto this little road that was surrounded by sand drifts. In some places you could hardly see the road for the sand. I was glad we had all wheel drive. After driving for a mile or so there was finally a little place to pull off to the side and park the car.

Now, it was a windy day. But you don't realize how windy until you are on the beach. It was WINDY.

But we still decided to have fun. In this little bay there were all sorts of boats docked, and a huge group (herd? flock? gaggle? family?) of sea otters just lounging around and playing.

We walked down the road and up a huge sand dune to see the ocean. I would have taken a picture, but it was so windy I coud hardly breathe, and the sand was flying everywhere and so it was more or less going to completely ruin electronics out there by the open sea. It was INSANE! But a ton of fun! I have never seen such angry and crazy water before....

Any whoo, here are some pictures of our adventure.

Aren't we cute?!

I feel like I am trying to pull of a "skater" look here or something. But it was just THAT windy!

Another awesome hair moment

It was a nice little day together. It was a good way to kick off the weekend too because we went from our little beach adventure to seeing Men In Black 3 (highly recommend seeing it. I laughed so hard).
