Vacation Fun at the Beach

By Mark D. Roberts | Thursday, August 21, 2008

I just got back from vacation. As is my tradition, I’ll put up some photos. In a day or two I’ll get back to more substantial blogging.

nathan tubingOur vacation began with a few days in the Sierra Nevada mountains of central California. I put up some photos from this part of our vacation a few days ago. Following our stay in the mountains, we headed for the beach, where we housesat for some friends for a week.

One of the highlights of our coastal stay was a boat trip with some other friends. My children enjoyed tubing behind the boat. In the photo to the right, my son gets some “big air” as he is tubing in choppy seas.

That sounds pretty big if you’re used to freshwater fishing. But a barracuda has to be at least 28 inches long, otherwise you’ve got to catch and release.

The photo below shows Dana Point harbor at sunset. What a restful spot!

    Nice. My in-laws live not far from Dana Point; when we were back in July, we, too, took an evening stroll along the harbor after eating seafood.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
