Instead of camping, we drove up in the morning, Barry and his dad dove in the ocean like little seals while Emma and I played on the beach. Then we relaxed, ate lunch, and went for a drive along the coast. We walked along a sandy beach, looked at sea lions, chased the waves, and drove home in the evening. We all had a lot of fun and came home extremely exhausted.
I'm glad we went. I needed the redwoods, ocean air, and salty waves. I've missed that big, blue beast and I seriously started to cry when the car rounded a curve and I saw the Pacific's majestic expanse for the first time in months. (I'm pregnant, give me a break.) It was so beautiful. I'm thankful for these special days, when my little, precious family is relaxed and together.
