It was sooo nice to escape the 100+ degree heat of Bakersfield at the beach! Ahh! This was an interesting trip because it was our first trip taking the trailer out without Kyle. It was just my parents, the boys, and I. We stayed at Le Sage Rivera in Grover beach in site 111. I definitely recommend getting a pull through site and not a back in because their back in sites are perpendicular to the tiny road and it was the hardest time we’ve ever had backing in a trailer due to people’s vehicles parked a bit in the road across the street from us.
We arrived Friday night, ate dinner, and enjoyed a nice walk from Grover beach to the monarch butterfly grove via this wooden plank path that takes you over the dunes. We saw lots of whale spouts and maybe a fin or two.
Saturday morning we got up, ate breakfast, and then I took the boys to the beach to play. I bought a skim board that no one could figure out how to use. There were all these sand crabs being brought in in the beaches and then as the water leaves they bury themselves in the sand. The boys loved them but they freaked me out when they touched me. Wyatt and I also played frisbee and he started getting really good at it. Also, the good year blimp flew by!
We were having a wonderful time when all of a sudden the wind really picked up and then everyone left the beach. We went back to our trailer, at lunch, then my mom and I went shopping at the Pismo outlet mall. I bought earrings for Cecilia’s 11th birthday and a wallet.
When we came back we enjoyed some ice cream and then we went on another long walk towards the monarch grove. I made dinner, the boys watched Pirates of the Carribean with my parents.
My dad also spent a good amount of time playing frisbee with Wyatt.
Sunday morning we got up, ate a quick breakfast, and squeezed in a bit more beach time. They played this game where they would run into the ocean and then try to outrun a wave trying to come in and hit them.
We came back, loaded up the trailer, and headed out! It was a nice weekend to get away from the heat, but it’ll be nice to get back to Kyle. I’m looking forward to our next trip in less than a month to Mammoth!
