Young at Heart
Last week, I spent 4 days with my amazing friends, Marcy, Renato and there 2 adorable girls. Lucky me! Pre-children Marcy visits normally would include intense shopping expeditions, beach days, laps at the pool and gourmet meals which took us five hours to create. Not a lot has changed! Glad to report that we hit BOTH H&Ms in the greater San Jose area. Wednesday, we all traveled to Capitola. To prove that we're not old, Marcy and I hit the waves with the goal of swimming to the buoys (brrrrr). We were stopped by two black heads bobbing about 10 yards ahead of us. Harbor seals! Marcy pointed out that sharks tend to feed on seals so we resorted to floating and treading for a while watching the wild life. The next day, we went to the pool for a swim. (Marcy's oldest daughter wasn't easily fooled by Ring Around the Rosies.) Renato made us all happy with a doughnut run... Speaking of, our five hour meals are reduced to true 30 minute meals with Renato at the helm! This visit was similar to the countless other visits, but it was a little richer with all that has been added Marcy's life. She says that the kids keep them young on the inside. I'm so glad that they share the fountain of youth!
