We did it. We packed a picnic lunch and the cars and headed to the beach. Our Ca kids, grandkids including our 2 week old granddaughter and my Mom. It was overcast, and sweatshirt cool for the August. We were hoping for a sunny day in the 70's but the kids tickled their toes in the ocean, listened to the surf crash and watched the seagulls. We ate our picnic lunch around a fire pit and let the kids slide down the sand dunes. Yes I even did that once while my hubs filmed me looking a bit like a kid. Alexa at 2 1/2 said over and over again " I wuv the beach"
The baby never knew she was at our special place. She was all cozy in her snuggly all day.
My sons and I grew up in Southern CA. We spent many days at the beach and hold some of our best memories. We also lived on the coast of Oregon and CA for 8 years in the 80's. My whole family has always had a special place in our hearts for the sound of the waves, the feel of the sand and the power of the ocean. Our other 3 grandchildren live on the Oregon Coast. So you could say " I wuv the beach too"!!
You can find lots of ocean beach inspired jewelry in my shop. I will always enjoy designing beach jewelry so if it is a love of yours keep me in mind.
