Salt Creek

One of the advantages to having a kid who takes Digital Photography: sometimes you find the most awesome pictures on your camera!

While the hubs and I were out looking at houses (yes, we are still renting!) we dropped the boys off at Salt Creek County Beach, where the waves were spectacular.



Here's one to give you a little perspective! (See the little surfer off to the right?)

This is the point that Dana Point is named for. One of these days I'll give you a little recap on Richard Henry Dana...but I'm going to have to get pictures of The Pilgrim first, so you'll have to wait just a tiny bit longer, mmmkay?

Here's a little something to strike fear in your heart!

Rain Rain Go Away

You may have heard that we had a spot of rain here in California.

It was quite the event! It pretty much rained for a week straight, which threw a majority of Californians into a tizzy. I have to admit, it's pretty unnerving to drive on the freeway in the rain, considering how fast people drive here. Actually, it's not how fast they drive, but how closely they follow each other. Well, at any rate, my week wasn't spent on the freeway, thank goodness, and I rather enjoyed the rain. Bring it on, I say!

One of the last storms had the tiniest bit of hail, so of course that prompted a little hail throwing, the closest we'll ever get to snow around here!


 Two silly California boys!

No Snow Here

I understand the rest of the country is experiencing somewhat of a weather event. Here's what's going on in our neck of the woods.

You enjoy your snuggly time by the fireside. I'll be out watchin' my boy.

Surf's up, dude!
