We are Here, We are Here, We are Here! (Family Beach Trip 2013)

We’ve been at the beach this week having some much needed family down time!

I’ve done a little of this…

Reading at the Beach(reading Sunday Morning Quilts and a whole stack of quilting books and magazines)

while the kids have done this….

Beach Wavesand this…..

Boogie Boardingand yes, a lot of this….

Playing at the Beach HouseI spent several pleasurable hours yesterday binding on the boardwalk with the sun at my back and the sound of gentle waves rolling in the background. It just can’t get any better than this!

Binding at the BeachEach year we escape for a week to Hermosa Beach, California with my husband’s parents and siblings. We stay in this adorable beach house owned by friends of the family. (The little green one surrounded by all the taller condos!)

Beach HouseThis house has been in the owners’ family since 1915 and they only rent it out to reliable friends. I am glad Jason’s parents are such friends!

The beach itself is very wide and long, with volleyball tournaments taking place all up and down the beach.

Barefoot Beach RunningJason and I love to run barefoot on the beach next to the water where the sand is more firmly packed. It’s just lovely when the water laps around our ankles while we run!

Next week we will get back to our regular hectic lives, but for now, we’ll enjoy a few more days of paradise while we can…

Relaxing by the Beach

    Looks like a wonderful time. I’ve never been to the Pacific, but I sure love the Atlantic beaches–from Maine and on south. Best wishes, a Maryland girl.

    That looks fantastic. I’m sure you are enjoying every minute. I’m away for the weekend myself in the Berkshire Mountains and it is lovely. I’m just enjoying not having to cook or clean up the dishes for a few days.
