Sunset on the beach...

With our move date getting closer, we want to take any opportunity possible to soak up our favorite places as much as we can, so a day off meant we better hit the road. So after a late start to our day, we decided to head west. With clear blue skies, we knew it would be the perfect day to sit back and enjoy the sunset on the beach.

It turned out fairly well, aside from us not thinking about the fact that a Saturday night would mean lots of campers. The beach that we had planned on hanging out at has a great view from a cliff, but that cliff was jam-packed full of RVs, so after walking the beach for awhile, we headed a little further south to a more open beach -- no cliff, but way less crowded. Here are a few pics from our time on the beach (South Beach) -- notice the beach itself was nearly empty, so I guess everyone just wanted to stay in their tents/RVs...

Obadiah and James look like they just had a fight and refuse to look at each other...

Such a little old man...

A few guys fishing -- I never thought you'd be able to catch anything so close to the beach, but they kept bringing them in one after another!

I love the pebble beaches...

And all the driftwood...

So does Obadiah...

He kept wanting to eat it...

With all of the temptation, who can blame him?

It was soon after that last shot that we headed to the next beach to actually sit and watch the sunset. By the time we watched the sunset, the temperature had drastically changed from what it was earlier in the evening. The truck claimed that it was 52 outside, but with the wind, it felt much worse. Nevertheless, we had fun and came prepared with blankets -- which we stayed under while Oba sniffed the air. Here are some pictures from that beach (Pacific Beach)...

Trying to get some energy out, and possibly warm up a little...

While being watched by the birds...

Comfortable on the bed of the truck and ready to relax...

There it goes...

I love sitting on the beach when it's not crowded. It's so peaceful and relaxing. It was great just having the three of us together with no agenda or rush to get back. If Liv was here, it would've been absolutely perfect...
