Today was a beach day. We had a relaxing morning and headed for the water. David and the kids got right to boogie boarding.
Noah started off with the salami. Seriously, it's 9:30 in the morning. Whatevs.
They were catching some good waves.
My husband is a big kid.
Noah did a shadow karate dance with sticks. He was pretty amusing.
Now, last weekend, we had a movie marathon of Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaw 3 and Jaws the Revenge. My kids aren't scared and we actually kind of laugh at how fake it looks. But, it may not have been the best choice of movies before a beach vacation. So, when we saw a fin, we all freaked for a second.
The girls took notice.
Luckily, it was just dolphins. They went back and forth from the pier for well over an hour. Very fun to watch. We saw a surfer get out and she stopped to watch them. We were chatting and she verified, yes, they were just dolphins. Sharks don't frolic. She's got a point.
The boats that are all out there are so cool to watch. Apparently, there is some sort of dock strike, so all these boats are just piled up with cargo and no where to unload.
My girl looking cute.
Then, it was like 1:00 and this crazy fog moved in across the beach. We had never seen anything like that. Yes, there is fog sometimes in the morning. But, this moved in like our dust storms do in Arizona.
And before long, it looked like this. The pier is on the left, but you can't see it or any boats.
That's Ben in the water.
Now, he's the little speck on the far right.
And then, the fog moved out.
Then, all of us went in the water and boogie boarded for an hour or more. It was so fun!
It was a great beach day. We are all exhausted and ready for a good nights sleep. Tomorrow is Knott's Berry Farm!
