Beach anyone?

Last night I got an invitation to go off to Santa Cruz… My friend Lisa invited me, and then Xeno called to ensure that I would be going. I thought about not going, then when I got the call, I just couldn’t say no. I mean, how often do I get to go to a bonfire at the beach? Exactally.

So, I went. Lisa, Xeno, the cute baby, Lisa’s brother in law, his two kids, Jamie and Marcie and their two kids went.

We found a great little place on the beach. We got there just about high tide. I was a tad bit concerned that we were going to get washed out… but thankfully, I was totally wrong. The water came within 2 feet of us, but never got us. It was wonderful.

I watched the surf with the kids for awhile, and tried not to get wet. It was just beautiful out there. The waves were very mild, and the sky was filled with fog, cooling off the warm Northern California day. Jamie built a really nice fire. Marcie made fried chicken and potato salad. Lisa made the yummiest cupcakes.

I got to be Auntie Gwenie bouncie chair, and calmed the baby down a bit.

It was so nice to be out and about surrounded by friends. I hope we do it again soon!
