Leaving the Hot Weather Behind













It only takes a few hours to get us from unbearable heat to cool fog. We decided at the last moment to ditch the Central Valley and head for cooler places. The girls just love playing on the beach. These photos were taken at two different beaches. The rocky beach is in Pacific Grove and the smooth beach is in Carmel.

A bride and groom came out to the beach with two photographers to capture the moment. There was also a seal lounging on the beach. Signs were posted to keep people a safe distance back. The girls collected twigs and feathers to create their own structures.

I'm with you. That's where I would head. Both beaches look great - and no crowds and just lots of fun to be had.

I'm glad you're enjoying the summer.
