Mountain Goat Brother

     Yesterday my brother was extremely bored. So, since he and I live on coastal Northern California, he decided that he wanted to go dig for clams and that I was going to keep him company. We went to Wal-Mart and bought a shovel then drove to the ocean. Ten minutes later we were on the beach walking along the sand looking for little holes to pop up when the water went out. We finally found some and Buddy started digging. And digging. No clams. A couple holes later we admitted to ourselves that we had no idea how to find clams and that maybe we should do some more research for next time.
     Buddy then decided that if he cant get clams then he'll just catch some fish. So we drove to a rocky area by the beach that some people were fishing by. My brother loves climbing rocks so we explored the rocks a bit first. While exploring my brother found an little empty crab carcass and gave it to me. I call him Eugene. ☺

   After trying to fish for a little bit the tide started coming in. But he was determined to continue trying.

He got splashed a few times but when his line got caught in seaweed he finally admitted to himself that he doesn't know how to fish. Before we started packing everything up he saw something on the rock he was on, he got it off and asked my what it was. It was a mussel. He was ecstatic. Finally, something he could get! He got a few mussels and I steamed them once we got home.
     He was so happy about getting the mussels that we went back at low tide for more. There were so many! He got enough for our dinner and by that time it was starting to get dark so we started heading back up the rocks. Now when I said that my brother likes climbing rocks, I mean it. He's like a mountain goat. He has uncanny balance when he's on rocks and can jump from boulder to boulder with no fear. When we were heading back up the rocks, this is the sight that greeted me.

Yes, he was actually in mid-jump when I happened to look up towards him. After we got home we had a yummy mussel pasta that I may someday figure out how the recipe went. If/when I do I'll be sure to share it. ☺
Update: My brother took a picture of the pasta with his laptop and just finally sent it to me.

It was delicious, but I'm gonna try a few things different next time and write stuff down as I go so that I can share the recipe with you. ☺

Art Attack 8-18-13

     It's a little late, but the theme for today's Art Attack is Fairy Tail. Why? Because my brother and I just spent the last couple of days watching the first 48 episodes of the animé on Netflix and it is also the reason that this post is late. ☺ If you don't know anything about Fairy Tail here's a very short explanation: It's about a wizard guild called Fairy Tail and all of the mischief and adventures that they get up to.
May Contain Spoilers:

      I love Lucy and her celestial spirits. Explanation: Lucy is one of the MAIN main characters. She is a celestial spirit mage, which means that she can summon celestial spirits using keys. The gold keys are the strongest as they are members of the zodiac.

Ninth Doctor by orookayasu
      This was my Doctor. I was at my cousin's house and she was watching Doctor Who. It was an episode with the Tenth Doctor. After going home I decided to watch from the beginning of the 2005 series, starting with The Ninth Doctor. Ten made me curious about the show, but Nine made me love it.

The Ninth by Dreki-K

I think you need a Doctor by snow-jemima
     Such a corny line but Nine was fantastic anyways.

The 10th Doctor played by David Tennant:

10th Doctor by J-saw
      Ten is probably the most favorited Doctor of all, so there is a lot of amazing art to choose from, but I'm only posting three. If you want to see more just look up The Tenth Doctor on

Doctor Who 3 by nightwing1975

The 4th Doctor played by Tom Baker: (For some reason I'm having troubles posting the rest of the Doctors. Instead, I'll post a few extra pics of the 4th [it's reaaally hard to choose only three since there are so many good ones because Tom's 4th Doctor seems to be most peoples favorite out of the classic Whos] and I'll continue with the rest of the Doctors on next Sunday's Art Attack.)
