We made the most of Geoff's one free day. First we tried to get in to the zoo, but there was no parking. None. Then we decided on something really wild, and we rented a fast boat! Hold on tight! We cruised under the Coronado bridge, and all around the harbor. We even saw a swimming seal. I don't know why my corner of the boat was the only part that was getting heavily splashed. Maria and I were fairly soaked by the end of the excursion. She and I laughed, shocked and amused, every time we were hit with a new wave of cold ocean water.
After boating, we walked down to the beach in front of the Del. Max found us an exceptional spot for tunneling in the sand and for burying William up to his neck. Maria loved all the activity, the sand, the digging, the laughter. It was a blue sky beautiful day, with lots of happy people on the beach and boardwalk. There were at least two weddings going on. The warm sun, the smell of the ocean and the feel of the sand, and time relaxing with my husband and children... all good.
Alex is about to put the squeeze on the Del.
We will be sweeping sand from our beds and floors for days, smiling.
