Coronado Beach at sunset in June (taken with my Blackberry last week)
Welcome to another My Town Monday!
This is the last week of school for my high schooler, my middle grader and my fourth grader.
Which means....Hello Summer Vacation!
And in San Diego, this means Hello Beaches! Because we have, uh, SEVENTY MILES OF BEACHES!
The Travel Channel calls Coronado one of America's best beaches.
A couple of times a week, Child #4 and I drive Child #3 to long-course swim practice at Coronado High School. Given the length of the practice and the distance this school is from our home, Child #4 and I ARE FORCED to spend the evening on Coronado. We generally wander down to the beach with a picnic dinner.
The first thing Child #4 does is slip off her flip-flops. The sand in the evening is pretty cold, and there's often a breeze. (taken with my blackberry)
Last week, we found this treasure! Look at the size of this sandcastle. (taken with my blackberry)
Here's Child #4 climbing on the breakwater. There was originally a scene on this very breakwater in I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES, but it got cut.
Eventually, Child #4 and I hit Spreckels, the candy store located under the Hotel del Coronado. A scene in this candy store was added to I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES.
