At the Beach
On Palm Sunday, after Mass I went to Pacific Beach with my daughter and grandchildren. Because the weather was in the 70s and Spring Break, many families had the same idea. After a long search for a parking space, we found a spot about a block away and made our way on to the boardwalk and across the sand. After my daughter set up, I sat on the beach chair that my daughter thoughtfully provided; my grandson took his trucks and shovels and settled into playing on the sand. My daughter and granddaughter went to the water which was at low tide, collected shells and splashed in the incoming waves. The blue sky, warm weather, watching a large sloop not far off the beach and a Para-glider just surfing along contributed to a lovely time. Later I enjoyed walking in the low waves and checking for pretty shells….my favorite activity at the beach. The only disappointment was that I forgot my camera!!
