image July23_Ocean2Saturday was for Ocean… 

July23_Ocean1 Anna kept saying how the sand on the beach is so different than the playground sand…

July23_Ocean4 No encouragement was needed to get in the water…

July23_Ocean3 A difference between Northern California and East Coast – looks like the ocean belongs to her! No wonder – water temperature is well under 70.

July23_Ocean6 Thawing out…

July24_Redwoods3Sunday was for redwoods

July24_Redwoods1 It’s impossible to get the scale of those giants in the picture. Here Anna is playing in the exposed roots of the tree. She was calling it her “hamster house”.

July24_Redwoods2 Anna could go through “the tunnel” in this tree without even bending much…

Beautiful pictures. This looks like such a pleasant weekend. We were at the Outer Banks of NC for the past couple of days and the water temp was below 70 too! It was the only thing that kept us from roasting on the 90 degree beach.

I remember seeing some of the huge CA Redwoods. I was amazed that one stump had been polished down for a dance floor. They truly are awesome.

I LOVE the thawing out picture! Glad she enjoyed it so much! I have a picture of a friend standing up in a hole in one of those redwoods. SO cool!

Love the photos and I can tell how much Anna had exploring this rich nature. The redwood trees are massive and impressive. The tree trunk tunnel is what every kid would love to live in!
