On Saturday we celebrated an old-time family tradition. A spontaneous trip to the beach. It was the first day of no rain in weeks and at 9:30 Saturday morning we decided to take advantage of it. By noon we were packed up and ready to go.
Here are some pictures of our day…
A few of these were taken from the truck window so forgive me if they’re a little blurred. The picture above is a statue of an old fashion grape crusher. It’s also right at the entrance to the Napa Valley.
Here’s another, I almost didn’t get this one…
The best thing about all the rain we’ve been getting is the bright green hills. The Poppies were in bloom but I wasn’t quick enough to get a picture. I couldn’t miss the massive color from the beautiful, wild Mustard Flowers.
When we got to the beach it was a little cloudy and a lot misty. The temperature was a comfortable 64 degrees. The surf was extremely high forcing the Parks Department to close a few of the more dangerous beaches but Goat Rock was still open.
As the afternoon grew to an end the sky became a brighter blue and the temperatures decreased.
On the way home we stopped in Bodega Bay for some salt water taffy. Check this out!
So much taffy, so little time…
We’re a strange group, the less we plan the more fun we have. It was a great day and a good way to get some fresh air after being stuck in the house for the past few rainy weeks.
