Day 14

14 houses on the wall and so ends week 2 of the new normal.  I will sew this row together and get ready for the next.  
 They tried to close the beach today.  It did seem to be empty in the middle of the day.  Police beach buggies were cruising up and down.  I think they were kicking people off.  We didn't see anyone on the beach, and the couple of people we saw sneaking through the barricades seemed to bounce right back out. 
 I made sure to get my morning beach walk in before the closing time of 11.  Kurt wanted to do an evening beach walk as well after they opened up again at 4, so I definitely got all of my steps in today!
 There have been a bunch of cruise ships all lit up on the horizon at night.  I'm not sure what is up with that.  They used to hang out there before docking and leaving, but I have no idea what they are up to now. 
We are having a make your own pasta bar for dinner.  It seems more festive than just having spaghetti.  Maybe more board games time after that?  We got an expansion pack for Catan so the 5 of us can all play together.  Sydney won last night with a clay monopoly. Not that I'm bitter, but I had a clay strategy all worked out and lost horribly as a result.  Perhaps we will have a rousing game of apples to apples instead. Always a crowd favorite!
I need a little fun after being on e-mail all day helping everyone get ready for online learning on Monday.  I have learned so much!  I think we all have.

good to have card game fights. :) good they closed the beach but maybe they could have given locals a pass for walking

My second son's family are big game players. They have tabletop tournaments during every school break. Not sure how long the current tournament will last!

Love the footprints in the sand! Glad you are able to still walk on the beach in the off hours. Have you guys played 5 second Rule?

Two weeks?! I just completed Week One. Thank goodness for quilting!

Maybe the cruise ships are moored away from the docks so they don't have to pay mooring/dock fees?

Your house blocks are becoming a lovely neighborhood.

Board games are helping to keep us occupied, too! My son (age 6) currently loves Battleship. I wish he was old enough to play Catan! I've enjoyed seeing your houses each day.

My family and my brother's love board games. We have a good time when we all get together at Christmas since we live 800 miles apart. Love how you're "building" a house a day to document this quarantine. Wish I had done the same with a house block or even some other. Good job too at still getting out for some fresh air and a bit of exercise.
