Tuesday4 and Happy Tuesday

Tuesday4  Hosted by Annie

By the Seas, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea

Welcome back to Toni Taddeo's Tuesday 4 where we give you 4 questions each week to stimulate thought and conversation on the net.

This week it might be nice to talk about the seashore.

1, If you lived by the sea would you like to own a boat  and what would you name it?

 Yes it would be wonderful to own a boat. I water skied when I was very young so that would be great.

A name, Agua Princess. Agua is Water in Spanish and one of the few words I can recall. A Water Princess would be a perfect name for my boat.

2.Do you enjoy beachcombing? What do you like to find...shells? sea glass? driftwood?

I haven't been to the beach in a while but I love shells. On Lake Erie, we found some beautiful sparkling rocks. I Love sand dollars and still have a few plus sand from a beach in Mexico my niece gave me after her honeymoon . I would would some sea glass and driftwood is popular to make lots of DIY Projects into great household items these days.

                                                                       Catalina Island

3. Do you have a favorite beach or seaside resort that you enjoy? Tell us a little about it please.If the beach isn't your thing what is and where do you like to go?

Catalina Island is a favorite place and I pray I am going to be able to get my husband there. It is such a romantic place and my favorite thing were the glass bottom boats. The first visit I had there was with girlfriend. The second time I visited was with a guy my girlfriend fixed me up with. He locked me and my oldest girl Noelle in his house when he went to work. I called my girlfriend Barb, we went out the window and we never saw him again. It sure was not a romantic visit hahaha....But Catalina is so pretty and I want to take my sweet husband there. He has not been to the beach. I have visited the Padre Islands in Texas, the Gulf Coast in Mississippi and  on the water in Louisana , Mrytle Beach in SC and of course the Pacific ocean in California. I am a Colorado native so I love the mountains too and my favorite places are  Rye, Colorado  and San Isabel, Telluride and Avalanche Ranch . 

Evangola State Park, Western NY on Lake Erie

San Isabel National Forest

You have not lived until you step into a hot springs at Avalanche Ranch while the snow falls around you. It is a magical place to visit. Carbondale, Colorado.

4. You are out and about at the seaside and you are so hungry. What foods are you going to try? What about a tropical cocktail? Have one in mind?

At the beach I love anything seafood related.I love a Pina Colada so that is my go to drink although I hve been told that I make the best Pina Coladas. A Chi Chi is similar too. We love the old TV series "Mamas Family". In an episode where she wins a trip to Hawaii she is drinking chi chi's. But those were non alcoholic. hahaha So at the end when she finds this out, she switches to her usual, that she drinks at home, a beer!

Happy Tuesday

I thought these two blog hops fit perfectly together today. I hope you will visit both and share some happiness and seaside thoughts too. 

Maxine has opinions everywhere. Here she is at the beach. But she sure has a point here.....

Before I close, my friend who is a native of Japan,mentioned that Honolulu Hawaii and Denver Colorado have about the same cost of living. She loves Hawaii as it is halfway to here in Colorado and halfway to Japan where she often meets her phamily. That is in travel time for each of them coming from those countries Japan and USA.

We've never been to Catalina Island, just the Gulf Coast beaches in Florida. We hope to go again next month.

Someday i want to visit the mountains, i haven't been to the mountains in many, many years.

Blogger must hate me; again, my comment here has disappeared. Just want to let you know I enjoyed it,!

I have been to Catalina twice. The last time was in 1999 for our 25th. We hope to go at least one more time. I have been to Hawaii 4 times. 3 times to Oahu and once in Maui. Our hotel was in front of Kaanapali Beach. It is one of the best beaches in the United States. You have been to a lot of places!

I have not been to Catalina since I was a kid, all those years in So Cal, too. Probably won't happen now!
