I have a feeling we’re going to be making quite a few trips to the beach this summer if we’ll have as much fun as we had this past weekend.
Here in Northern California the weather at the coast can be hit or miss in the summertime – you can have a gorgeous sunny day or the fog can roll in and you can have a super cold and windy day – yes, even in the summertime. We live on the eastern side of the Santa Cruz mountains – about 1/2 an hour from Santa Cruz and, luckily, we can usually tell when it’s a foggy day over at the coast.
We happened to hit a perfect day last weekend. We like to go to our favorite “dog” beach in Santa Cruz so that Bubba can have a bit of a romp too.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t at all as prepared as I like to be – no sunscreen (thankfully Mimi had some), minimal snacks, no chairs, no umbrella and no toys….none. I was actually a bit pessimistic and thought it wouldn’t be a very nice day. I thought it would be a bit cool and windy.
Luckily, it was a GREAT day. Though I forgot the toys, these 2 cutie pies had fun especially because there were….
Big sticks, little sticks…it didn’t matter.
As long as they could pick them up and throw them into the waves, or flip them around on the beach. It was all good.
Even logs worked..they rode them, beat them like drums and even smashed shells on them.
For the boys, that was all the fun they needed.
For me and Pops, all we needed was to see them running and laughing and having fun.
Perfect day…I hope we have many more this summer!
Happy Summertime (or almost summertime depending upon where you live.)
