Our first trip to the ocean beach this year! Here Tynor, Niall and Cory are holding up part of the wreck of the Peter Iredale, which has been rusting in the sand for over 100 years.
Later Niall and I went back to the museum near the West Batteries so he could buy a little hurdy-gurdy and get a flattened penney momento (and so I could get a break from a very crabby 5-year-old). We stopped by the adjacent rose garden afterwards, and Niall ended up spending a half hour or more smelling the different roses (so he could find the very best scented ones) and chatting with the woman who was dead-heading roses and pulling weeds there. I rested on a bench after the first dozen roses or so and just enjoyed the nice afternoon and a little breather in my day.
