Yesterday was hot, and I have a sunburned back to prove it. We drove down to the Monterey Bay and spent the morning and the early afternoon on the beach of Pacific Grove's Lover's Point Park. Save two dead sea lions rotting in the sand and seagulls stealing whole bags of Cheetos, it was an amazing Saturday. The ocean was calm and clear, the sky was a deep warm blue, and the light was brilliant, promising the arrival of summer soon. The kids slept through the entire ride there, and only whined a little bit on the way back, nothing a song or two couldn't take care of. Also, Grandpa John stopped by and hung out with us, making the family fun complete.
I didn't bring my camera as I already had a ton of stuff to carry (traveling with kids is like a perpetual move across the country, even if it's just a day trip), but I had my phone charged and my eyes peeled for the good sights. I am very happy with the snapshots I took home - my new year's resolution was to return to shooting for my own pleasure, and it's definitely working out great.
I hope you are having a spectacular weekend, too!
