When we're in Hollywood we
love to head down to our favorite beach on Sunday morning.
So this morning we packed up
our Sand Toys and headed off to Manhattan Beach.
We set up camp just above the
high tide point, not far from the pier. (This sea gull
was headed for Mummy &
Jeremy, hoping there might be cookies to share...)
The February surf is high,
and there were lots of surfer boys in the water.
But we decided to stay nice
and dry and work on our sand construction projects...
Alex disappeared for a while
and was replaced by his alter-ego, Super Surfer Boy!
That was SILLY!
Then we all went out on the
pier to watch the waves break and the surfers crash.
In the aquarium at the end of
the pier we visited with the fish and the sharks...
We LOVE spending time at the
We finally left the pier and
had lunch outdoors in downtown Manhattan Beach.
Back at home Alex took an
extra nap while Jeremy ran around in the backyard...
Then our best pal Sally came
to visit and we all went to the Grove to watch the
dancing waters fountain, to
listen to a live band playing in the park, and then to
have dinner at the Farmers'
Market. It was the best of days!
When we came out of the
Farmers' Market the sun had set and the full moon was
low in the sky behind the
clock tower. Alex sighed happily and said: "It's such a
pretty night." He was right.
