Wordy Wednesday #60: Who Lives in a Pineapple Under the Sea?

The tide pools near Bolinas were fascinating for the kids. Our very, very, very good friend Haley turned the big 0-8. No big party at the Chuckster's or some other overdone venue for Hailstorm. Nope, her idea of a good time was hanging out at the seashore. [Tho' she wasn't selling any seashells.]

Although we found a few sizable starfish and crabs and loads upon loads of seaweed and algae -- and a seal had been purportedly sunbathing on a nearby rock before our arrival -- the biggest find were the homemade cupcakes. Clearly, someone's mother spent entirely too much time honing her Martha Stewart skills whilst in exile in New Zealand. [Hey, maybe New Zealand was just a ruse and she was really doing time, just like her idol Martha.]
