Beach day at Carpinteria

Posted in My family on August 12th, 2007


We went to a nice beach up the coast at Carpinteria yesterday. This was a loosely organized Cub Scouts event and we met up with Andy and Michele and their family and several other couples and families that we know.

The beach is long – clean white sand – and reasonably tame water. The boys had a blast – body surfing and boogie boarding. Both Josh and Noah caught some nice (child size) waves – enough for them to peek their enthusiasm. They had a great time. Now they want their own boogie boards – maybe next summer!

We hiked south down the beach in search of shells and starfish.

We left the beach about 6:30 we are went to Rusty’s Pizza for dinner and then headed home. It was a great afternoon.

This was a late afternoon meet so we bought a portable barbeque and food and had a picnic at the park after the meet.

Out of Control Zucchini

This is a zucchini that got forgotten – and grew and grew and grew . . .
