Newport Beach-September 2010

Thanks to Don and Alison's hospitality, we were able to hang out right on the beach for a week in September. It was so nice. Waking up every morning, going for a run while staring at the ocean to the right, people watching right in front, and hoping that the cool houses had opened their blinds so we could look in. Having no agenda except that someone needed to put the beach chairs out in the morning. Making runs to the taco place for $1 tacos. Biking to circle K for a soda refill. I think one of the reasons that I loved this vacation so much was that it was just that... a VACATION. Everyone is there for the same reason-to do nothing. I loved biking on the boardwalk and watching everyone on their patios, bbqing, laughing, playing cards, playing with their kids, reading US weekly, people napping in the sun at 4pm. It totally fostered that feeling that you don't need to do anything or go anywhere.
Max was in paradise.
All he needed was a shovel.
Trying to be safe, even indoors.
