The Annual Beach Trip

The Annual Beach Trip to Carpinteria happened for the fourth year.  The DGDs drove down with me and we arrived in time to meet Aunty Cheryl.  Lissa joined us by Tuesday afternoon. To make the week all the more wonderful, my good friends La Donna and Bill Readmond were in Carpinteria for the month so we got in lots of girlfriend time with walks on the beach.  I didn't do too much sewing or have much alone time this year but that was okay.  Being with friends and family was so wonderful, relaxing and good for my soul.

Plenty of tree climbing happened whenever the opportunity arose.

Made sure to get in lots of ice cream eating

Cheryl enjoyed the walks in the sunshine.

Good friends gathered to share and laugh

School Teacher friends from Agua Dulce Days
The Readmonds are such dear, dear friends

A little fabric was bought here

Carpinteria......the best beach experience in Southern California
I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to travel to places like this and to renew friendships.  The ocean is such a restoring place for the busyness of life.
