A Beach in Winter

Things have been fairly hectic around here lately.

Christmas is just around the corner and the holiday baking is in full force. Between decorating sugar cookies and icing the gingerbread men, it’s easy to forget that Josh and I leave for California this weekend!

Yup, sunshine here we come! Or rain; I think it’s raining in California.

Either way, it has to be warmer than England. It was minus five last night with snow supposedly on the way.

Also, we have had some wonderful visitors staying with us the last few days.

That’s right; Laura and Elle are back with us and what better way to celebrate the cold weather and being in Europe than three Californians taking a trip to the beach.

We drove down to Brighton and played in the sand rocks, which Josh especially loved throwing around.

Josh was thrown up in the air, his favourite, by Elle.

Elle is one strong lady.

I think Tim is the only other person I’ve seen able to throw him that high.

We went for a walk out on the pier.

On the pier, Josh, Laura and Elle had their very first Brighton rock from Brighton’s best rock shop, though I think they all probably say that.

Best shop or not, it was pretty yummy.

So, even though we weren’t in California, we had a great day.

Eating Brighton rock and watching an amazing sunset.
