A day at the beach

We took a day off today and headed to the beach to enjoy the sunshine after nearly a week of solid rain. Here in California, we tend to take the sun for granted; it's amazing how quickly that changes after a few  wet days.  We had cabin fever; we couldn't get outside fast enough once the clouds blew away.

It wasn't warm enough to swim, of course; it was sweatshirt weather, but the sun felt good, and it was so nice to be outside again. We stopped at a favorite sea food stand and ate fried clams and chips; the weather was pleasant enough to sit outside. After that, we walked off the calories on the boardwalk.

Yup, this is the life.
