First day of my escape to California and for once I did not head directly for the beach. Instead, I met up with my daughter and sweet grandson at the farmers market. Big hugs and a bag of oranges. Around the corner to Teewinkle park, where Brian climbed and played, fed ducks and squirrels, and completely charmed me. When he was ready for a nap, I took off to say hello to my parents, then off to the beach. Low tide stroll through the mussel-covered rocks. Katie and Brian met me in the evening to catch the sunset. A lovely day!
