365 Inspirations—68: Sleeping in the Sun

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth."—Buddha

The weather has been warm and sunny in Seattle. When we see the sun around here—that mysterious orb in the sky—we want to be out with it.

Today Yoon and I had the day off, so we both woke up late. We had breakfast at around 9AM, relaxed a bit and then headed out to Richmond Beach, a beautiful spot near our house. People were out with dogs, kids, picnic lunches, frisbees, balls, beach stuff—it was crowded!

We found a spot away from the crowds and both of us fell asleep. For a moment I swear it felt like I was in the tropics. It felt so good to be in the sand with my head on a log listening to the sound of waves. I just melted into it.

I fell into one of those deep sleeps where you wake up and don't know where you are. I was happy to discover that I was on the beach.

I climbed up on a log and Yoon took a few pictures.

 I also got a shot of him resting on the log. He looks like he's in perfect peace in the picture above.

We had Thai food for lunch and then went to see Oz the Great and Powerful in 3D. It wasn't the best movie I've seen this year, but it was entertaining.

Now we are back at home and resting again! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Is it typically sunny where you live? How do you like to spend a sunny, weekend afternoon?


  1. We get a pretty decent amount of snowfall where I live. I like so spend sunny weekend afternoons hiking :)

    P.S. I think I may go see Oz today but the reviews have been kinda blah :)

  2. What a relaxing Saturday! It sounds wonderful. I would love to live near the beach.

    We've had some sunny days here of late. We had some snow last week, but it didn't stick around. We enjoy going to the park when it's sunny and riding our bikes or just sitting by the river. But with my foot in this monster boot and on crutches, we're a little restricted right now! :-(

  3. on the days when I'm at the VA and the sun is shinning I roll my wheelchair out of the shade and do my impression of a sea lion lazing in the beach. I saw Oz as well today, loved it
