Sand in the Hair, Sand in the Ears, Sand in between Toes….and Sand up the NOSE

Got our gear on and headed out to Santa Claus Beach in Carpinteria today. We were ready for a little local adventure vs. being in the car for a third day in a row. Luckily (???) the boys are always up early…today 6am….so getting to our destination before the crowds is never much of an issue.

Today we enjoyed the simple pleasures of sand…..LOTS OF IT….creating sand castles, Drew adventuring a little farther into the ocean than he’d planned and fun with kelp & seaweed. After a fun morning, we took a friend’s recommendation and ventured a few blocks further to Padaro’s Beach Grill. They have an incredible outside, fenced eating area with umbrella covered tables and a big sand pit for kids with sand toys. Perfection! Drew is napping, Alex is making Star Wars LEGO creations with Matt and the surprise of Grandpa arriving! Pretty great way to spend a Monday.
