A beautiful day

Well, I know it was a little risky, but I started the day with a feeling that I wanted to record what this day was like...just in case.

So I went for a quick walk.  It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day.  The ocean was very calm, but occasionally a wave would rise up, curl, and tumble towards shore.

From a distance, I spotted a good omen a Peregrine Falcon perched on the edge of the bluffs.  I always feel lucky to see Peregrine Falcons, so the sighting boded well for the day.

Looking at these pictures will remind me of what October 30, 2013 felt like — the day the Boston Red Sox won the World Series at Fenway Park!  Who knows when that will happen again, especially since it hasn't happened in 95 years!  Yeah, Boston!

Now many of you know that we've adopted the Giants as our West Coast/National League team.  And we were right there with them in the 2010 and 2012 World Series (and even were lucky enough to attend the Lincecum gem with 14 strikeouts against the Braves in the 2010 NLDS and an NLCS game in 2012).

But serious sports fans will understand that your home team will always be "the one" — and so we listened intently to WEEI from 3,000 miles away and jumped around with Red Sox gear on during each big play of this World Series.  Hats off to you, Boston, for an amazing year!  Yahoooo!

Well said. I bounced around too much as a kid to have the home team but this year was a pleasure to claim the Sox as my team. I felt like they did it the right way. WOOHOO!
