Beach day at Carpinteria


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.
