Unencumbered at the beach

This summer Addie has discovered Agatha Christie

South Jetty Access. Can I say anything that the photos don't deliver? I was so spellbound, sitting there for hours looking at the ocean and my kids playing and chatting and laughing with Peter. The water was incredibly cold and beautiful. Addie stayed in for a very long time (of course). Ashby and I got wet. Peter got wet. It Doesn't get any better. I usually try to find a few key photos, but the scale is so overwhelming.  In fact, it's one of those things that's too beautiful to photograph. Ouch.
My Ocean, my beach. Sheltered from the freezing wind.
Up the hill.


There go my kids!

Mama's in it now.

Peter, ever loyal photographer in support of the blog.

Are you going in?

It's simply perfect!

Woo hoo!

Peter, unencumbered.

Family fun.

Insatiable Addie.

Two peas in a pod.

If only I had a record of everything she says.

Quite a hike to the beach, trail covers two dunes of grass.

Looking North, Coast Range in background.


  1. Yay! So gorgeous!
    Nice pictures... are you gonna tell us what kind of camera you got? ;)

  2. It's a Canon Power shot sx230HS. A step up from our old canon, slightly smaller (thus portable for training photos) but still not so fancy that the kids can't use it.
