My case in many points begins with the fact that it is WINDY today in Southern California. I mean it's blow-your-one-year-old-off-her-course-windy.
But, at our favorite beach....
No wind, low tide and these gorgeous yellow wildflowers on the hillsides.
Also, there wasn't a soul on the beach but us.
Until our friends got there.
The weather was warm but clear, which is rare.
You could see the islands beautifully today.
Although, as a disclaimer I do have to tell you that it is not uncommon during the Spring to find ladybugs on our beaches.
