Dear Family,

This could not have been a more perfect summer day.  We decided to drive to the beach for a few hours.  The fields of wildflowers along the way were breathtaking – white, purple, orange and every now and then a pop of red. It was a feast for the eyes.

A pod of brown pelicans greeted us on our arrival, showing off their fishing skills to us earth-bound souls invading their domain. I could spend hours just watching the waves gently caressing the beach or at other times crashing onto the sand like conquering warriors. “I believe in toes in the sand grounding the soul”.  Yeah, flip flops!
