A day at the beach

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×


I’m thoroughly ensconced in California now. We’ve been here nearly two weeks and the girls are officially “tired” of Mexican food. One can never tire of the beach though, and here are some pics from a recent trip to Santa Cruz… 


Red pail

Where we collected lots of shells!

And made this sand castle. OK, I lied, someone else made it but I took the photo.

The red bucket (pail) in action.

If you look closely, you can see Sponge Bob on the kite.

PS — I took these pics AND wrote this post on my iPhone 4! I don’t care what Whoopi Goldberg thinks! I love that phone.

    Shout out if you hit stepford again xo

  4. Oh, the sun, the sky, the sea. Sigh. It’s gloomy here today, but it’s only 9 days until we head for France. Husband spent a couple of months working in California a while back, and he’s been hankering to live there ever since. It looks beautiful

    You’re in CA again?
    We’ve been lucky with the weather.
    Hate to say it, but my daughter has gotten sick of the beach. She hates cleaning up the sand part, I guess.
    Looks like you guys are having a blast. Great pictures!

    This really makes me cry. Our vacation-relaxation seems to be long gone and the weather is crap (of course!) in London. I am so jealous!! Enjoy yourselves, MMx

    Wish I could be away on an extended holiday like that.

    @Tracey I wondered where you were based, so sorry about the weather

    What a great time you look like your having. Soak up the sun for me as it is raining and miserable here in Sydney, Australia.
    Enjoy your Summer holiday!

    @nappyvalley Not sure what the attraction is šŸ˜€
    @expat Then the kite is a perfect place for him!

    Sponge Bob is on the TV as I write. What an annoying laugh that sponge has!
