Beach Bums
We got to go to Crystal Cove yesterday. It was so much fun! I got to meet Eve and Red (who is a commenter, but does not have her own blog) - not to be confused with my son, Red, whom I have already met. We had a fantastic lunch at the Beachcomber Cafe. These girls were so much fun! Fabulous conversation, amazing view, and delicious food. I couldn't have asked for more. Of course, being the total lame brain that I am... I didn't take pictures. I had my camera, but just didn't do it.
I was so thankful that Hubby and the kids came along. I got us lost - 3 times. I don't know what I would have done if I had been alone. I'm not very comfortable driving down here. I'm always sure that I'm going to make a wrong turn and end up in the middle of some gang war. Because I'm paranoid. And because I watch too much T.V. ... Anyway, Hubby kept the kids just a ways down the beach while I had lunch. Then, when I got back, Red (my son, not the new gal I just met) and Hubby went out body boarding. All in all the day was a success! It was so fun to put a face with a name and I hope to meet more bloggin buddies some day! So, if you're headed to Southern California, let me know!

I miss the days of living in Laguna Niguel and going to the beach. Going to a lake is so different than going to the ocean. Also, I love walking on the beach and having the sand rub all the dry spots off my feet!!! Glad it was such a fun day.

How south is south? Glad you had such a lovely day. I get lost all the time and we have GPS [and try and ignore it when it gets a bit bossy]

You must have been having too much fun to forget about taking pictures!
