an unconventional beach trip

August 27, 2010
our feet
for the past few days, there has been an unusual heatwave here in the bay area. although other areas often get hot, the peninsula (where i live) hardly ever does. so what does everyone do during a heatwave? go to the beach, course. the only problem is that david and i hate the beach.

ok, so maybe hate isn't the right word. but after a while sand loses its appeal when you find it EVERYWHERE. on top of that, northern california beaches are frigid. (i didn't realize that swimming in the ocean could be warm until i was in greece last summer). so, instead of sitting in the sand and baking in the sun, we kept our shoes on and took a little walk along a trail that overlooks the area. it was lovely. the breeze, bench, and beach (at a distance) were perfect.

  1. Thanks for reading & commenting on my blog...I'm itching to cut my bangs again :)

    I LOVE your blog. Looks like you've had some amazing travels.

    I'm sooo jealous you live in Cali. I LOVE Chicago...but I can already feel the cold winter creeping in!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Wow, I can't believe this is home, it's beautiful!

    Thanks so much stopping by my blog. I'm looking forward to reading more of yours!!
    Have a lovely weekend,
    :) Christine

  3. how lovely. love that last photo of you!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I loved this post cause it made me laugh. I have a friend who lives in the bay area and she says the same thing when a "heat wave" hits. However, she forgets that it get over 100 degrees in my neck of the woods! And that's hot.

    P.S.-I like your blog!

  5. you are so brown! And you look pretty GREAT in the picture with david. He looks pretty odd. :) He is not a lover of photos. lol

  6. These pictures are great! You are a fellow bay area girl ;-)
