Caution: Beach Pics In January, View at Your Own Risk

I truly love California.

Packed the kids up with spare clothes and headed for the beach.

We didn't need bathing suits and frisbees, just some extra sweats and a camera.

Oh and my 24oz. coffee.


The sky was a tad overcast in places, peeking blue in others.



Not too many people at all just a lot of birds.




And, this lady, who arrived with her dog, started peeling off her clothes, and then went for it.


The dancer practiced her leaps.


The ham, well...hammed it up.


The boy got a bit busted for throwing sand, as usual.


But, overall, it was peaceful.



Gotta love the coast.

    I am jealous! I lived in California until I was 10 and still have a lot of family there. The moderate weather and the beach are the things I miss most.

    Oh I am so jealous here in NY snow is like sand on the beaches. OK maybe not everywhere but we still have a few mounds of it.

    Wow. You're awful showing us poor Colorado mountain folk those ocean pictures. It looks heavenly. I'll try to live vicariously through them . . . and not be angry.

    Seriously can't fathom it. We have no single body of water that isn't frozen right now...did you know you can drive half ton pick up trucks over the lakes right now?? I can't imagine heading to the beach in January!!! Sounds great, though!

    have I told you lately that I hate you? Our SB trip was way too long ago for you to be doing that to me!! Being land locked and snowy sucks!
