Vacation Pictures

This post is just to show some pictures from the vacation.  My regular post with food intake will be added later tonight after intake/burn is completed.

Mission Beach (Friday)

"Temptation" & his nephew @ Mission Beach

Me seeing the ocean for the first time in my life

"Temptation" & I @ Mission Beach

Temptation drew our initials in the sand w/our foot prints 
(inside the heart)

"Temptation" on a surf board I drew for him

Me jumping rope with a piece of seaweed

Me sleeping by the fire w/Piper after a long day at the beach

Huntington Pier: 1/4 mile long (Sunday)

The first pelican I've ever seen in person (Huntington Pier)

The infamous Ruby's Diner @ the end of Huntington Pier!

Piper @ the doggy beach (Sunday)

Piper w/sand all over her little nose!  (Sunday)

 A seashell I found and put on my necklace

I really wanted to find a star fish but didn't so 
"Temptation" bought this one for me

I also wanted a sand dollar so he bought this too

My teeny tiny stocking 
(the spoon is there to show size perspective)
It had a couple of mini-candy bars in it which I gave to "Temptation" and the kids.


  1. I hope you enjoyed the beach. :) I can't wait to go back when the weather is nicer.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. :)

  2. Looks like you had a great time!
    First time at the beach! You will have to go back when you can go in! My doc's office has a salt water tank and every month I go in I sit and stare at everything including star fish that float along the bottom. I now want a salt water tank! Glad to see you had a good time.

  3. That is too cool! I haven't been to the beach in forever. And your dog is cute.

  4. I loved the beach! I have always been such a water dog that everyone who knows me very well was shocked to learn that this was my first time at the ocean ever. I can't wait to go back, though I must admit I'm not looking forward to the drive there and back again. Next time I would really like to rent kayaks and go for a day-long paddle; there is a place on Mission that rents them for $14 per hour or something like that. So for $140 a person "Temptation" and I could make a day of it. On the other hand we've been talking about buying kayaks for months now so maybe we'll just spent $200 bucks each and get our own.

    Ki: Thank you but shh, she doesn't know she's a dog. ;) She walked around the dog beach looking at all of the other frolicking dogs like "Oh this is demoralizing, someone put them on a leash please". lol She's such a saucy little princess.

  5. How I love the ocean! Haven't lived close to it so far, but at least I am living at a big river at the moment, and the ocean must be right around the corner...

  6. Thanks for sharing the pics. What a cute doggie you have.
