A little caregiver outing

Prunedale, CA

My Dad has been feeling a little better these past couple days.
Of course he's still in pain, so we take care of that with meds.
He doesn't seem as 'foggy' as he has been lately.

My Mom and I were going to take him out yesterday for a change of scenery,
but he wasn't up to it, and encouraged us to go out to lunch.
We made sure he was okay with pain meds, 
and sitting nicely in his recliner,
and took a drive over to Moss Landing.

Mom really likes the Sea Harvest,
a good seafood restaurant right on the harbor.

They have the best salmon bisque!
There are quite a few sea lions nearby that love to entertain..

We also saw quite a few kayakers,
and big boats going out of the harbor.

It was great to get out, if even for a couple hours.

My Dad was feeling well enough to go to church today.
It really perked him up to see everyone,
and be able to listen to the sermon and hymns.

Looks like another week of doctor appointments :-)


  1. Caregivers need a bit of "care" too. So glad you and your mom got out for awhile.

  2. I'm glad you got a chance to get out, a respite is good for you. It's hard, you make sure to take care of yourself, too!

    Nice that your dad got a chance to attend church, it sure did him a lot of good, for the body and soul. ;c)

  3. It is a hard time. Glad you and your mom got a little time away. Makes it easier to be patient and loving with your dad.

  4. Wow! That's a big "pile" of sea lions!!!

    Glad you were able to get out and take a little break... it's good for everyone.
