Today is Tony’s birthday and we are just kicking back and enjoying doing next to nothing! We got up around 10:30 am….and Tony jumped onto the Internet to write our Congressman Devin Nunes about President Obama’s decision not to have the Justice Department enforce the DOMA Act. We find it very SCARY when a President decides to pick and choose WHICH laws to enforce….no matter what side of the fence you are on, you should find this troubling. His job is to follow the constitution and enforce the laws that have already been enacted….not decide on his own if he thinks something is constitutional or not. Newt Gingrich had it right when he used the example of how would the left feel if a President Palin thought that abortion was an unconstitutional act…and she decided on her own to disallow all future abortions. The left would be calling for impeachment in a situation like that. The president approached this all wrong. If he felt it was unconstituional…he should have gone through Congress….and the courts….the proper way!!
On a happier note….after that…we went up to the deck on top of our hotel….and barbequed hamburgers for lunch. The day had cleared up from the day before when there were storm clouds and intermittent showers. I didn’t see a cloud in the very blue sky today! There was a stong and steady ocean breeze with a nip in it….but boy, oh boy, does it ever feel and smell so good. I love being at the ocean! Here’s a self-taken photo of the two of us on one of the couches.
This is Tony just getting through checking the burgers on the grill. What a view of the ocean from the deck!
Me…..just sitting on the brass bed/couch enjoying the sunny afternoon….
And here is Tony relaxing on the same brass/bed couch….bundled up to keep warm.
The following photos I took yesterday afternoon…the rooftop deck as several partitioned sections where people can relax and read a book, lay in a hammock, or just sit and enjoy the afternoon/evening in a very relaxed atmosphere. There are also a couple tables where you can eat on the deck too.
One of the partitioned sections…..there is actually a TV in the cabinet to the right behind the chair.
