In no time at all we shook off the travel heebie jeebies 
and settled in with our son and his family.

The grandkids and their mom and dad were more than glad 
to show us the California way to enjoy a day.

We were soon hauling all the stuff needed---

 --for a day at the beach.
(Insert the sound of rolling waves, the call of sea birds plus a little “Surfin’ U.S.A.”)

If you’re familiar with “Calvin and Hobbes” you’ll understand this boy.

His dark-haired sister danced in the waves.  (“Dance, Dance, Dance”)

She’s the gymnast in the family and is looking forward 
to watching that part of the Summer Olympics.

The oldest sister is a fish like her dad.  She took on the waves and laughed at them.

Grandpa enjoyed the sunny day and the view that came with it. (“Help Me Rhonda!”)

They built an awesome sand castle.

It was just high enough on the beach to survive the incoming tide.

(more wave sounds and “Good Vibrations”)

When the tide went out there were tide pools to explore.

(“Fun, Fun, Fun”)

Oh, how wonderful is that. A little slice of heaven. Glad to see and hear you're making the most. The grandkids are so cute. Makes me want to go for a swim in the sea. Doubt it will be as warm in western Canada when I jet set there next week. Doh!

Awesome fun! And what a beautiful family! I could feel the sea breeze, Leenie! And I'm wishing I could at least dip my toes in that gorgeous water. :)

Have a beautiful Fourth of July!
