More on Pismo

That morning, after the fog cleared out, the sky and ocean were a perfect gradation of blue to blue.  It was breath taking.  I almost caught it on film.  And, while the photo is beautiful, it still didn't capture the essence of what I saw as I looked out across the beach that morning.

As you can see, the pier was still a ways off, so we hoisted ourselves up and started walking again.
Daddy and Zoe walked ahead a bit, and there was something about their footprints, side by side, in the sand that struck me as... poetic.

One last look before we continue on to the pier.

We walked up the pier for a bit. I asked a couple of locals what we needed to do while we were here... best places to eat, best things to see. And then we stopped and watched the surfers for a bit.

There was nothing much going on wave-wise that day, but they were still out there trying to get a little ride in their day. It looks both so calming and so exciting. I think in another life I may have been a lazy surfer. ;)

We walked back to camp... all of us exhausted beyond belief. Were we had some lunch, some play, and a nap (everyone except Mama who had to drive the girls around in the car before they would settle down)

Look, Mommy, I climbed the tree!

We ended the day with the girls' first s'mores!  Surprisingly they weren't about the chocolate and graham crackers, but those marshmallows?  "More please!"
