Scenes From a Weekend // Beachday

Another weekend here, on the sands at San Onofre.
No place better to spend a Sunday.

Highlights being:

- a long nap (for me) in the sun
- scoring the shady spot under one of our very favorite palm hunts to house our little party
- the boys studying a leopard shark & bat ray that had washed up  on shore
- bamboo forts they made, and spear fishing attempts later after they'd grown bored of the sand stuff
- jack wandering happily around shallow waters at the shore
- chicken tacos & guacamole from Pedro's
- vanilla ice cream from the newly parked food truck parked along that dirt strip
- a parade of rusted combis in every color imaginable, lining the whole beach
- friends and their salted cucumber snack plates
- exhausted, sun drenched boys falling soundly into bed just after dark, freeing up my night for a slice of pizza and a quiet house to enjoy Mad Men.

We hope to be back this way this weekend.
And every Sunday thereafter if we could.


  1. I love the VW's and your beach is gorgeous. Ours is just cold and in boring old blighty!

  4. I would be a big fat liar if I said I wasn't the least bit jealous of your day at the beach (especially the nap in the sun part! what could be better??). Glad you are enjoying the great outdoors!

  5. Great column. You sound exactly like someone I'd love to know. Keep celebrating you. The world needs a lot more people just like you. Thanks for your honesty.
