Day 214: Sunglasses

31 Jul

We got up way too early to look at some tide pools. In order to access said tide pools, we had to walk down a cliff that was made up of crumbly rock (very technical terms). I’m not a heights/cliff person and I believe that a person could never be too far away from a cliff. I took one look down and decided there was no way that I was going down a cliff and instead, planted my butt down and froze. Needless to say, I won’t be looking for tide pools below cliffs anytime soon.

Joaquin has been going through our stuff and clomping around in my shoes. We think he’s fascinated with heels because of the loud noises that they can make. He allowed us to take a picture of him with my sunglasses on. He’s too cute!

We spent the rest of the day at the beach. It was sunny and perfect. Whales have been hanging out by the beach, so we got to see them several times. Watching whales really doesn’t get old, even though they do the same thing over and over again.


Day 213: Ocean Fun

30 Jul

We spent another few hours at the beach today. It must have been in the 50’s. Jen, Jaime, and their mom spent most of the time bundled up, while John and I took the dogs on a long walk down the beach. When we came back we found out that Joaquin hadn’t gone down to the water at all because he was afraid that the ocean was going to get him. I took him down to the water to kick the waves and then brought him back to our spot. Soon after, Jaime took him down to the water.

As you can see, Joaquin loved the water this time. By the time we left he was soaked and covered with sand.

Day 211: Tiny Birds

28 Jul

We’ve seen a lot of humingbirds close to the beach. This one was guarding its patch of flowers from other hummingbirds in the area.

The weather’s been nice, but it’s been pretty cool over here– in the high 50’s low 60’s. There’s nothing like going to the beach in a sweatshirt and pants ;)

Day 210: Ocean Fun

27 Jul

We spent the day at the beach – playing in the sand and dipping our feet in the freezing cold water. Joaquin was scared of the ocean at first, but seemed to warm up to it (that might be a slight exaggeration).

Day 165: Sneeze

12 Jun

Today was a beautiful and warm day! We really wanted to go to a beach, but we went out to breakfast instead. We should have taken our camera, but we forgot (of course…).

We made it almost the entire morning before our allergies popped up with a vengeance. :(

Day 71: Ticket to…

10 Mar

Hawaii! We had so much fun in Kauai last year, that we decided to go back to Hawaii again this year. If all goes as planned, we will be going through major life changes next year, so we’re taking advantage of the free time that we have now because it might not come again for a while. For the next few months, we will be dreaming of  tanning on a warm beach, watching the waves crash on the shore and spending a week together without the worries of work and school… We can’t wait!

If you’ve been to Maui, please send us your recommendations!

Day 53: Road Trip

20 Feb

We took a little road trip to Corte Madera today. We had all we needed – Starbucks and Pandora playing on the iPhone.

We will be going back when the weather is a bit warmer – Muir Beach is only 20 minutes away!
