It is great living close enough to both the beach and the mountains to just wake up in the morning and say, "Let's go!", and do a spontaneous day trip! That's sort of what we did Sunday, except that we decided the night before. We hadn't gotten to the beach all summer, and the weather this past weekend was delightful - finally, a break from that oppressive triple H weather (hazy, hot, humid) ! We packed up a lunch, scrounged up some buckets and shovels from the garage, loaded the car, and headed off! Great way to officially end "Summer". I even got in the water!
