Labor Day Weekend Carpinteria

We decided to take a last minute get away on Labor Day weekend before the soccer season was in full swing and took up our Saturdays for the fall.
We always like to go on the hike by the train tacks to the seal sanctuary. There is a fallen tree the girls like to climb.
It was oddly foggy at the beach even though it was warm out and super hot and sunny back at the condo.
Winston is truly in his happy place in Carp. He just misses Granny & Grampy because they take him for more walks and give him more belly rubs.

Lily was playing photographer and luckily Gemma was in the mood to be her model.
We went down to the beach to go looking for sea glass.





By the afternoon we were ready to head to the beach. It was so foggy until about 2pm but at least we didn't roast. It was still crowded though.
The girls made their own beach canopies and hid out.
Then the sun and fun came out! Cousins came to join us at the beach!! Rach and Ben and Gwyn had so much fun with us.
They even took the big swim out to the platform. We had two boogie boards and Alex & Rach took Lily, Gemma and Ben out. Gwyn and I stayed back to make sure they were safe and call for rescue.
We played and splashed in the waves while we waited.

You can see they made it to the platform!!


They made it safely back to shore too.
Then we had plenty more time for boogie boarding. Everyone took a turn and bit the dust a few times. We finished up the day at Padaro grill before bed.
The next morning we rose and after breakfast we went for a beach walk at summerland. The tide was in super high so we could not walk on the beach in front of our million dollar dream homes. 
We walked the other direction and did our best karate kid impressions.

It was again foggy but yo can still fetch ball in the fog.

Back at the condo we made lunch and relaxed for a bit.
We went for a dip in the condo pool and decided to clean up and head home on Sunday so we could chill at home on Monday.
