On Sunday I took Jude for a good part of the day while Isabella and Sam went to see Tim Burton's, Alice In Wonderland in 3D at the Grand Lake theater. Jude was tied to me by the moby and we walked all along Lakeshore and Grand, peeking into the bookstore, then getting Bubble tea at a tea shop. Soon enough Jude fell asleep and I found a bench to sit on, staring out before me, breathing in the cool breeziness of the day and enjoying the peace of letting go of thoughts and finding myself in the present. With children I find that my life often speeds up in a hurried pace when I don't have a moment of quiet or rest, but sometimes on a lucky occasion the baby sleeps and I get to be close to him while finding peace in the stillness of the moment. I sat on the bench for a good 45 minutes, watching people and cars travel past, with a clear mind and open heart.

Went to the beach on Saturday to Drakes Beach at Point Reyes. I ventured off for a while on my own over a slippery wall that jutted out into the ocean from the cliffs and obscured the continuation of the beach on the other side. The beach then stretched out before me with piles of large rocks strewed all along the sand to the cliffs behind. I began finding good sized pieces of petrified whale bone here and there as I walked about a 1/2 mile or so. I had hoped to see some elephant seals which I heard to be found at the southwestern tip of the peninsula. When I got back to Sam, Isabella and Jude they were changing out of their wet clothes from playing in the water. We sat in the cafe there and drank hot chocolates and to get warm. Overall it was a really great day to be had and I yearn for the opportunity to travel again.

I am currently reading this book and I love it. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves historical fiction and detective novels. I can't wait to read his newest book The Last Dickens. One other book that is of the same caliber is An Instance of the Fingerpost, by Iain Pears. These books are most likely books that guys might be into but definitely those who like a book with lots of plot twists.
