Blue, Green, and Yellow

Hi, from Dillon Beach, CA!

Photos by Grace Eliza Cook
Grace and I discussed the options for our day, today, and decided to hit the beach.  Since dear Grace lives in land-locked Kansas, she was pretty excited for the opportunity to see the big, blue, yonder.  It was a beautiful day--sunny and warm, although a bit windy out at the coast.  The drive was amazing with fields full of yellow blossoms as far as the eye could see, rolling hills and peaceful countryside sweep by, and then suddenly out from between the hills you can gaze down on the amazing Pacific Ocean surrounded by green sloping hills dotted with sheep, rock cliffs, and sand dunes.  It was absolutely beautiful and amazing.

We had fun digging holes, jumping off and down the sand dunes, and dipping our toes in the icy cold ocean.  Caiden loved the water and as you can see in some of the pictures, I had to keep running after her before she could plunge herself head first into the wintry water.  Crazy kid!  She kept at it, though, even though I'm sure her feet were just as numb and aching as mine.  Don't you just love winter?
