Beach Pictures from Summer 2005

In August we took the kids to the beach a couple of times. People back home think that just because we live in California, that means we must go to the beach all of the time. Sadly, we do not go nearly enough as we should. We only made it to the beach twice this year. We’ll do better next year.

Santa Cruz

Early in August, we went down to Santa Cruz. It was a beautiful day and we spent about five hours at the beach and two hours at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. For those of you that grew up near me, it is a lot like Paragon Park. I don’t have any pictures from the boardwalk, the digital camera’s battery ran out.

While we were at the beach, Casey and Quinn invented superhero identities for themselves. Casey was Super Surfer and Quinn was his sidekick, Beachboy. It was pretty cute. Click on the link below to see the pictures…

A couple of weeks later we went to the beach at Capitola. It was a bit chilly in Capitola when we got there. It warmed up a bit by mid-afternoon, but by the time we left it was getting cold again. It didn’t matter, we had a fun time anyway! Click on the link below to see the pictures from Capitola…

I hope that you enjoy the pictures, even if they are a couple of months late!
