After a couple of days in Ventura Beach – a place we could return to – we headed back north. We didn’t go straight, though. We went to Carmel. I have been to San Francisco more than 20 times but never made it that far south before.
No way I would even consider taking off my sweatshirt but kids can be surprisingly hardy when it comes to making the most of water and sand. Note that the surfers in the background are wearing wet suits.
At home, going to the beach means the weather will be the same as at our house, and if it’s nice and warm there’ll be plenty of playing in the sand and shallow water.
In Marin you never know what you are going to find once you get to Muir Beach. Chances are it’ll be windy, cloudy, misty at times and the sound of the waves will be accompanied by the clatter of the children’s teeth as they run around in their bathing suits.
The beach on Amager is just 1 mile from my house. On this day I found only few people eating ice cream. Instead I noticed the repeated pattern of the two benches and the red sign to the right in the background.
