We go to the central coast in California which tends to be much cooler and while we had a few days of sun it never got above 75 degrees and most days was a bit overcast. I know that doesn't sound like a beach trip to many people, but we LOVE enjoying the cool weather and the scenery in the middle of summer when we have had 95+ degrees at home for over a month. Our very warm blooded baby LOVED the cooler weather & we liked getting to see him snuggled up in long jammies & hats since it's far too hot here for any of that.
Our family picture on the beach.
Since we had lots of family around (the rest of our family stays in two other houses for a total of over 30 people there for the week) hubs and I decided to get away one evening for dinner on the water & a little shopping downtown. The photo below is before our date night on the deck of the house we stayed at. Those houses across the street drop off onto the beach and it's all water behind them. Love our view from that deck.
I leave you with one happy beach baby & a happy family after a week in "paradise". My paradise anyway!
