thirty days of 30 - day 27

Brittany, age 27.  
(At the swim park. My friend Phoebe bought me a picnic lunch.)

Day 27 Festivities: Swim in the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon Coast
Of all the times I've visited the Oregon Coast, I have never swam in the ocean.  The Oregon Coast isn't really a "swimming coast", it's more of a "looking coast."  Mostly because it's always windy and cold - regardless of the inland temperatures.  So I decided today was the day I'd take a dip in the water.  Yikes!  It was COLD!  Seriously, I think I stopped breathing once my entire body was submerged in the water.  I'm happy I did it and won't ever be doing that again.

Today was a BONUS ROUND of birthday festivities! I also went golfing, AND got to go to the Tillamook Cheese Factory for ice cream (rocky road and white chocolate raspberry in a waffle dish) and free cheese samples.  Yay!  It was a good day.

I was humming the Rocky theme here.
And I'm off!

Here's a close up of the above picture.
The moment I fully submerged myself under water.
That tiny splash in the middle of the photo - that's my foot.

Running for my towel.

Ice cream!!!
Something about me: I have dark gray eyes.  My mom calls them "gun metal gray" because her grandpa also had dark gray eyes and her mom used to tell her stories about his unique eye color.  She said she could never imagine what the color looked like until she met me.  My eyes tend to change colors and they're often mistaken for blue and even green sometimes.  But they're not.  They're gun metal gray.

You are a very brave woman. I may never make it in to the water up here at "the Coast".
Was that picnic at the swim park 3 years ago? I swear we just did that...

By far my favorite post thus far, mainly because of your foot in the ocean! :)

Beautiful--and unique--eyes. Both color and shape.

Lucky you!

Love, Momma
