On Friday, December 27, 2019, I met my buddy Norm, for our weekly coffee, at the Whitby House, in White Rock. The place is across the street from the ocean. It’s my favorite place to go for coffee.
After we have our coffee, we usually go for a walk along the promenade to the end of the pier and back. But this walk was unlike any we had ever done before. It was also something neither of us had ever seen or heard of before that fateful morning.
But rather than trying to describe what we witnessed, the following short videos will show you what we were so excited about:
Sometimes, when you’re feeling down, all you need is a little fresh air, a brisk walk, and a best friend to confide your troubles. Norm has always been there for me, and he never fails to break me up with his witty humor.
After viewing the attraction, I felt a hundred percent better.
Anchovies, seagulls, harbor seals, sea lions, and buddies can do that for you, too!
So, get out and walk with a friend, breathe in the fresh air, tell a joke or two, and forget what’s bothering you.
UPDATE: December 31st – Yesterday, I went back to the pier and there were four or five sea lions! I was able to capture them on my cell phone and have updated the above video clips.
I also bumped into Sunny, this awesome Pomeranian, who stole my heart. But then again, I haven’t met a dog who didn’t!
Dedicated to my friend, Norm Wolff
