Photos of Yesterday

Beatrice took some photos yesterday of our outing to Capitola. Since I’ve already posted two entries for today, why not go for broke and just do a third?

It was an epic day, much like we’ve been having regularly, with temps into the low 70s even—in mid January. I’ve sunbathed in the backyard a couple of times.

There were lots of people out. Don’t think it was nearly 70 on this day, and there was a breeze and bit of chill factor. Father down the beach, kids were surfing. All but two had wet suits on. But two of them had but only board shorts and bare skin.

I thought of my many experiments in the gym I used to go to with the cold plunge and sitting neck deep in 40 degree water for up to 15 minutes. I doubt these two kids were as focussed on the cold as I was. They were actively engaged.

    What’s that big white thing in the sky? It looks vaguely familiar…

    Okay I admit there are SOME advantages to living in the Socialist Worker’s Republic of Califronia.

    I hope you got a game of skee-ball in at the arcade (I hope the arcade is still there!)

    That is one of the coolest Sun pictures I have ever seen! You won’t see anything like that during the winter months here in Michigan…

      True but don’t sell your state short… the UP and Mackinac Island are immensely beautiful spots… just in a different way.
