Tim swam the Balboa to Newport piers race in 51 minutes today. That's pretty decent! Tim loves swimming and he really enjoys the rough water swims. We hung out and just enjoyed being there.
Growing up in So Cal, the beach is so nostalgic. We spent many summers with my grandparents (reference my 100 year old grandpa!) at Dohenie State Beach and San Clemente camping. I wrote a couple of good songs on the sand, listening to the waves, looking at the moon.
There were families from every demographic there today; I love that about the beach, too. It doesn't matter where you work/live, what you do (or don't) for a living...we all love the sand, the surf, and the sun!
