Beach Days

When we were kids my parents used to take us all camping to Silver Strand Beach (What a magical name, right?)
for a week or so at a time. You pull your RV right up to the sand and camp, just like that.

My mom used to read to us all the time. My favorites were always the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, and The Horse and His Boy I'm especially fond of. I can still picture lying on the blankets in the sand for 'nap time' with my mom's soothing voice weaving a mysterious tale..

My love and I are supposed to take a vacation to wine country in a few weeks. Especially after reading this fabulous post, I'm tempted to change it up and go beachward. After all, we've lived in San Diego our whole lives and I'm ashamed at how little time we've spent at the beach!


  1. I remember Mom reading that to us, too. And making friends with those two girls (whos names escape me) after an hour of knowing them... I wish it was still so easy to make friends. Children are amazing that way.

  2. Beach days are my absolute favorite :-)

    Sounds like a sweet Mom, loved that book!


Thanks for stopping by! I always love it when someone nice makes their presence known. =)
