Beach Day with Jameson

It’s no secret that we love the beach.  Several years ago, Leroy and I committed to spend time (even if it’s an hour or so) at the beach as frequently as possible.  We usually make a trip at least every other month but we strive for monthly trips.  Sometimes we invite others to join us, but most of the time it’s just us.

Last weekend, Sierra, Joey and Jameson joined us on our trip.  This was the first time Leroy and I experienced the beach with Jameson.  (He’s been a few times, but had not been there with us.)  We chose to go back to the beautiful Asilomar State Beach for the easy access and great tide pools.  As expected, Jameson loved it.  He loves the water (even the cold Pacific Ocean.) Grandpa had to keep a tight hold of his hand to prevent him from splashing around.

Jameson loves birds too. He is fascinated by the Pigeons around our house and found joy in the abundance of Sea Gulls at the beach too. It cracks me up how he squeals and points to them (just in case I missed it.)

 Yes Jameson! We see the bird!

Beach days really are a feast for the senses. One of our favorite things about going to the beach is the consistently cooler weather (especially in the summer months.) Even the smell and taste of the salt water is a treat but my favorite part is watching and listening to the sound of the waves. It is mesmerizing and meditative. Nothing calls me to prayer as easily as watching the waves.
