Down By The Bay

Settlers Bay; beautiful view near my home. Yes, this is a bay. No, that is not land between me and the mountains, that is the bay and it is currently covered in ice chunks. As the current moves the water underneath, and as the tide comes in and out the ice breaks into chunks and appears like this. It is a pretty incredible sight to see. If you’re out there listening you can hear the chunks smash together as the water tosses them around. It’s amazing! We enjoy going up and watching and listening. 

Speaking of down by the bay, does anyone remember that children’s song? “Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow, back to my home, I dare not go!” I can’t get it out of my head now! What a strange song though… It makes no sense whatsoever. Fun to sing and catchy though! 

So, back to the bay. As spring progresses the ice while obviously melt. So I will have to make another trip or two out there to show you guys how the melt is coming along 😉 . It feels like it was the middle of winter just yesterday, but it also feels like summer is going to be over tomorrow. Why does time fly so fast? I didn’t believe them when they told me it goes faster the older you get. It really really does!! So if you’re reading this, and you’re under the age of 25. Do it! Like Shia LaBeouf says, “just, do it!!”! And what do I mean by it? Anything, whatever it is, please do it. Call your parents, go visit them, book that trip to Mexico, Europe or even Alaska! Pay the ridiculous price for the concert ticket you want to go see. Try something new, take an art or cooking class. Just please, try all the things! Because if you dont, you’ll regret it. And you won’t just regret it when you’re 70, you’ll regret it when you’re 25 and ready to have kids, but still have so many things you want to do…. It’s a crazy, busy, amazing world out there! Make the best of it. So get out there and go look at your bay! And I don’t mean bae. Although, if you’re is nice to look at like mine is, do that too!
