The family and I, along with my cousin , took a spur-of-the-moment trip to the California coast on Sunday.

— — My son Devon runs along the beach while my wife Danya captures images for the photo album.

We drove along Highway 199 to Eureka. The winds were so strong on the north end that we had to cover our faces to prevent sand from getting into our eyes. We then drove to the south end of town and watched the surfers while sitting in the sand. Day trips like this are a big part of the appeal of living in our own "Garden of Eden."

See you next time,
