Day 7 - Sun & Surf

We enjoyed a slower morning, had breakfast, and packed up for a day at the beach with temperatures in the high 20s. We made a quick stop at Target for a beach blanket, Starbucks for some coffee, & Chevron for slushies :)
An afternoon of sun & sand was wonderful. We had a picnic lunch, played football, searched for seashells & shark teeth, built sandcastles, & laid in the sun.
We packed up, loaded up the truck, and then took a walk along the pier. The wind picked up but it was still nice to walk along and see all the surfers out there. It's no wonder sharks mistake them for seals! There were so many of them in a big cluster waiting for waves; surfers that is, not sharks! :)
We drove back to the hotel in time for the kids to make it to the rootbeer float night. They were happy. Grandma & Grandpa went to Costco to pick up dinner (chickens and salads). After dinner we got ready for tomorrow and went to bed early. We're heading to Disneyland tomorrow with our Magic Morning, so we hope to be walking by 7:30 - That will be a challenge!
We'll see how we do.
It's due to be another high 20s day - should be fantastic!
