Really Random Thursday, 2/6/20
I was able to see both Charlotte and Levi play basketball this week. I saw Charlotte score her first basket of the season.
Anyway, we thought it might be a good idea for the Gabe and Ella to have their own scooters at our house. And of course, helmets. Ella requested a unicorn. We found a helmet for Gabe that came with markers--just perfect for the artist that he is.
However, this weekend it was cold and very windy--30 to 40 mph, so we didn't walk around the charming town as much as we usually do.Finally, on Tuesday morning before we had to leave, it was much nicer and we had a lovely morning in town.
Fun facts about Carmel:
There are no street addresses, so most of the houses have names. It is considered bad luck to change the name on a house.
Also, local law bans wearing shoes with heels more than 2 inches in height or with a base of less than 1 square inch, unless the wearer has a permit! The town was trying to avoid lawsuits resulting from all the irregular pavement.
The benefit of the high winds was catching some spectacular waves. No matter how hard I try, it is really impossible to catch a good picture of waves. And just when I give up, the next wave is astronomical...
