Friday was the semester grading day at school, which means, no kids and we get a full work day without meetings. These are days I can actually get stuff done! I got a ton organized (not nearly enough though) and got my plans settled for the next 12 weeks. I always feel so accomplished after grade day.
Friday night we took the hour drive out to the coast and checked into our hotel. It was already dark by the time we got there, so we couldn't really hang out in the sand. We did walk around and found a restaurant/bar and had dinner. We headed back to our hotel after and ended up buying a movie on pay per view. Not that kind of movie. It was The Watch with Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill. Um, it was weird. Not as funny as we thought it should have been. Eh. It was only $5.
Saturday was AMAZING! The weather was phenomenal. Sunny, high 50s and no wind! Are you kidding me? We had been planning this weekend for awhile now and we couldn't have asked for better weather! We spent the day wandering along the shores, napping on the beach, walking along the jetty and exploring the little shops. The biggest let down of Saturday: we really wanted some fro yo, but we had to settle for ice cream cones. Tough life.
Here's a couple pics from Instagram. And these tsunami debris watch posters were all over. I understand why we need to get rid of stuff floating over from Japan, but there has always been Japanese things washing up on our shores.
Here is another treat from the weekend: Sea Lions!
How cute are they?? We don't see them every time we are at the coast, but it certainly isn't a rare thing.
Sunday was actually The Mister's birthday. After we checked out of our hotel we headed to the casino for the breakfast buffet, and a little gambling. We doubled our $50, and headed home. We sort of watched the game, I totally watched Beyonce, made some Boboli pizza and did laundry.
How was your weekend? What is your favorite thing to do at the beach?
