Another slew of sunny, sandy places

This was one of the kids' favorite things to do. I love how a hill of sand can provide endless entertainment. They are great for launching off of.

They are great for rolling down.

Even though she's a handful, I could eat her up.

Especially when she smiles.

The kids had such fun at the tide pools, we went back.

Ellie was terrified and spent most of the time on the stairs - posing.

Lucky shot.

This is one of the reasons they wanted to go back - so many nooks and crannies to explore (so many opportunites for stranding, yikes).

Ready-made seating

So much slime (beautiful, isn't it?)

Lots of things to scramble on

I loved this house (the tree, really - looks right out of a Dr. Seuss book)

Buh-bye beautiful beach

Thanks much to my sister and brother in law for letting us camp out at their house (we are happy to say it is still standing and not flooded, burned or burgled).

I sort of hate you right now. In that completely jealous way.

What a great place to spent a few of those childhood moments! Glad they let you parents spend it with them! Great pictures and good dialogue. Glad you are safely home.

We went to the tide pools at La Jolla and Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. Both were great (no restrooms at La Jolla, not that you would USE a beach bathroom, but its nice to have options)

I didn't know they had such beautiful beaches in CA. We went to long beach for a day before we went to Disney. Wonderful to dig in the sand and play chicken with the waves, but not much to look at. I know where we'll go next time!
