cockleshell bay

we took this particular jaunt on monday. james had just finished two dementor, soul-sucking tests and needed some cheering up. why didn't anybody tell us that medical school is hard? (oh you all did?)


the beach = caribbean prozac

mom and dad, counting the moments until you're here. xoxo.


p.s. look at this giant pig. the one on the left.

caribbean prozac. amazing.

My bishop and Steve and I got a good laugh at the pig joke. Bishop Blair called you "a cutie."

Jake and Jenna said...

i love your salt water sandals. love them. also, i noticed that one of your favorite books is "a tree grows in brooklyn." i loved that book so much the first time i read it that i went back and re-read it right away. one of my all-time favorites.

Janae said...

Those shells are so great! Can't wait to explore down the peninsula too. Sorry about the dementors.

Natalie said...

abby the shells are so beautiful! we buy shells like that and hide them under the sand for our kids to find because the real san diego shells are lame. glad you have your prozac. i'd say that is the best kind to take:). have fun with your parents (and the pig)!

Sarah said...

David and Shalynna said...

You are hilarious. Please tell me you don't think you are actually a pig, because then I'm an elephant.

Have a wonderful time with your family! Next time tell them to invite me.

Abby, I found this song this weekend (looove this band - UK Indy, what could be better!) and just loved it! I think it's your taste (we seem to have similar taste in music) and the video reminded me of your new location!

I blogged about *our* pigs on FS. They are cute, but not quite as big as *your* pig. :-)

Emz said...

I'd like to sign up for the "caribbean prozac" thing. I CAN be bottled right?

(i'n a kakie) said...

I WANNA GO TO THE OCEANNNNNN!

Andrea said...

It's so beautiful there! What an awesome experience for you guys! I miss you and little Pearl and Milo!

Sophia said...

Breath taking!!!
I agree, there is something about the beach that calms me. From the moment I put that bob marley CD in and start to drive to the coast to the moment I hear the sound of the waves... it's magic.

kristen said...

sis. blackham asked me if i could get your e-mail address for her. she has some pics to send you.

Bridget said...

this makes me want a beach and warm weather.

Bethany said...

Thanks for clearing up which one was the pig:)

Joanie said...

So the pig is huge and freaky. I can't believe you got that close. You look adorable and where did you get your sandals? They are super cute.
