OUR LIFE IN 3D

The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

Life’s a Beach; that’s for Shore…

Well the summer is over. School is in full swing. Football is kicking in on the weekends. 

Good Bye Ocean! Good bye coastal weekends! As the King of Somewhere Hot I thrive in the summer. As the temps start to cool I become more of a normal guy I am afraid. Life can be a beach some times. 

I went to bed with this dilemma on my mind and the summer solstice creating odd moods and weird dreams. 

Like last night, I had this dream where I woke up to a spectacular sunrise… sunrise

My family and I rode bikes down to our favorite breakfast joint, Brown’s Donuts, home of the fresh, homemade, warm donuts. It was wonderful! So many choices! So little time… 

'Brown's Donuts are good but don't finger them all Skylar

After breakfast we peddled our bikes down to a miniature golf course. Our daughters tried to figure out the difference between putt-putt and hockey while I got to strut my stuff and the King of Somewhere Putt! 

'how hard did you hit that Daddy?'

‘how hard did you hit that Daddy?’

Later on our ride down the boardwalk we ran across these lowly pirates, begging for more money for the likes of hot caramel popcorn, frozen custard, or yummy fudge. 

My favorite letter is 'Arrrrgh', matey...

We rode our bikes back to the perfect beach! ….just as I thought my summer was over. ssurf ii

The water was nice. The waves were perfect! There was a coastal breeze coming off the mainland making the waves stand up and casting picturesque spray off as they crashed towards the beach; ahhh…shore.

The only thing keeping me from slipping into Margarittaville was a horse fly caught me off guard early in the afternoon, keeping me from completely relaxing with my Jimmy Buffett Ipod. Other than that odd twerk in my dream the beach afternoon was truly classic; a beautiful day on the edge of the continent. surf

What do you think it means in my dream? 

My girls loved it too. The day was so clear we could see all the way to Atlantic City it seems. My girls only noticed this surfer dude, asking me what he was carrying and what’s it for. I told them to stay away girls! Stay, far, far away! atlantic cityIn order to take their mind off this peculiar dressed surfer boy I took them to the local amusement pier on the boardwalk. Here they could find rides galore! rides galore

They got to ride some of their favorite spinny, thrilling rides…. WP_20140920_004

Plus, some old favorites like engineering Thomas the Train

Cheer up, the ride will be over soon...

Cheer up, the ride will be over soon…

My girls really love trains! 

The setting sun cast a spectacular view of the ocean at dusk. surf at dusk

We took a moment in awe of the beauty that this world has to offer.

We thanked God for allowing me to have this special time with my family, in contrast to how I was feeling a year ago. And we decided time was short so we needed to celebrate with one of the greatest gifts known to man…

FROZEN custard's my favorite

What a dream! If only… 

If only it were real. If only I could relive it tomorrow. If only these stupid dreams weren’t dictated by some odd lunar effects. full moon

If only this was not a dream and we could relive all this fun tomorrow!

 THAT would be a dream for shore!

Have you had any weird dreams lately?

  1. Iam so glad you’re well!

  2. Very nice dream, the kind you wish you forgot to set the alarm clock.
    Im glad it didnt turn into a nightmare with that surfing dude.
    Lets hope for more good dreams 🙂

  3. Yes, hoping for many more good dreams. It has done nothing but rain since …in my dreams, I hope you are doing well Ms. Aurora! Thanks for dropping by…in my dream…

  4. If reality were but a dream,
    And dreams really DID come true…
    Would we still have to awake?
    Or eternally partake
    In a lifetime of bliss all anew?

  5. Phew, that is too deep for me this Monday morning but I like the way it sounds. Without dreams our mortal existance would be routine. Dreams inspire and motivate, and in this case become real. I hope all YOUR dreams come true SSM and you find YOURSELF in a lifetime of bliss! Thanks for dropping by…

I would love to hear from you...
