Beach season is here!!!

Posted in photo by gwen on March 16, 2010

Is it spring there yet? It finally warmed up a teeny bit Sunday, just in time for the time change. We bundled up, dug out the Beach Blanket, and went to the beach here in Alameda. It’s rained so much this winter that there’s a big grassy area on the sand — that’ll dry out in no time, but it’s very nice for now.

There were quite a few people flying kites.

Chad practiced his Mandarin and I raced through Mary Karr’s new memoir, Lit (her first, The Liar’s Club, is one of my favorites) until it got so cold we couldn’t stand it anymore.

Right in the kisser

Then we walked down along the shore and back on the public path, admiring all the fresh wildflowers.

Today was even nicer so I took an afternoon break and walked over and lay in the sand reading. Hopefully the weather will hold out til my next self-employed day, which is Wednesday.

    That kite photo is just so wonderful! I was thinking I’d get a kite for my guy for Easter.

    i the first photo is really super beautiful.

    wish i was a kid again flying a kite somewhere, instead of sitting in front of a computer.
