The weather was great! It was a little chilly in the mornings, but the sun always came out before lunchtime and warmed us all up. It was Gavin’s (and Gentry’s) first time at the beach and he totally loved it - especially running away from the waves and playing in the sand. I think our next beach trip will be to the East Coast though because the water is so much warmer there. The Pacific is just way too cold in my opinion... Cold enough that none of us to wanted to get in the water more than just enough to get our feet wet. We spent one morning on the sound side to see how Gavin liked it without the waves and he did get fully submerged while over there; but on the ocean side we pretty much just played in the sand.
We enjoyed yummy Sushi and Pho and packed picnic lunches to the beach each day. I loved having the Condo so we could just eat lunch there and do laundry as needed. I feel like VRBO is a must when traveling with little kids.
Bringing babies to the beach requires lugging around a lot of equipment, but because our condo was so close to the beach it was totally painless. Next time I definitely want to have one of those wagons with huge wheels though to lug around our stuff through the sand. My stroller could only hold so much and it wasn’t super beach sand friendly haha.
On our way home we drove up to La Jolla to show the Seals to the boys, had a yummy Poké lunch, and stopped by the San Diego Temple before making the official journey home. It was a great way to end the trip.
Here are some photos from our little family adventure! Can’t wait to go to the beach again!
