How awesome is that?!

We decided on a "beach" theme for our SoCal Blog Hop and that made me happy, happy, happy!
Now, most people think of the ocean when they hear "beach, " but it took me awhile to get used to that term. You see, I grew up in a small town in Idaho, surrounded by a huge, beautiful lake! All growing up and even now, when I'm visiting, we say, "Let's go to the beach today!" "Wanna go lay out at the beach?" It's just what everyone says! Here are a few different views of our little beach and lake!

Just one side of the "beach."

You can see the "beach" next to the curve at the end of the Long Bridge.

Isn't it amazing?!

So, so beautiful! It's even more amazing out on on the boat! So much water. Everywhere! 

Southern California has so many wonderful beaches! Of course, I am also a BIG fan of Florida beaches!!! LOVE the clear, turquoise water and the white sand! I am sure I would LOVE every beach. Believe me, I have a bunch on my list to visit!!! Do you?
But, back to Southern California beaches!!! That's why we are here!
During Spring Break, my sister and niece came to visit me. One of the nights they were here, we stayed in Huntington Beach! Here are a few pics!

To me, it doesn't matter if you are at a beach on a lake, or a beach on the ocean...they both instantly calm me. I am my most calm and relaxed near the water and I soak up every minute of it. Where are you the most relaxed?

  2. Hi Beth! I love your gorgeous "beach" pics! Just beautiful! I am definitely feeling my most peaceful at the beach (or any body of water including the bath tub) too! A good bubble bath helps when you can't get to the beach after a stressful day of teaching! Ha!

  3. Florida beaches all the way! Nothing like bouncing in the waves while the sun rises.

  4. Beth, I love your blog! Thank you for that cutie patootie freebie!

  5. The beach is what always calms me, too!! Even when I was at UCLA, we'd go to the beach in the winter, bundled up to study!! Thanks for the cute freebie!

  6. I LOVE your beach themed sight words activity. Thank you so much!

  7. Beautiful photos! LOVED your freebie, thank you! :)

  8. Loved your comments about beaches. When I was in College I decided to pack up and go to Minnesota to school. During the summer I remembering everyone saying lets go to the beach. Well coming from California I was saying, Say What???! And the beach was on the lake and so nice. Very calming without the big crashing waves. It was an eye opener for sure.
