30 days at the beach gone in a blink…

IMG_552530 days in California in the middle of a Yukon winter – ahhhh….BLISS! The only problem is that it flew by!

As I shared in an earlier post, we weren’t really on vacation – we just moved our life for a month and shifted into different routines. Most days went like this…

Head out and enjoy the beach and the water. Head back in for a late lunch and some more work time.

Grab a cocktail and enjoy the amazing sunsets before settling into dinner.

For the last two weeks of our visit we took advantage of a great one week free offer at Triple Threat, a gym just down the street, and enrolled in boxing classes as a family – lots of giggles and one heck of a work out. We went 3 days a week at 4:30, which after a day spent walking and surfing sure left us exhausted.

We picked up a set of dirt scooters while there and all the kids (big and little) had fun with them.

It was great to have a lot of cousins come through over the course of the month – nice to have play time together since we live so far away.

We all learned about the local seals and sea lions – the warmer waters this year are playing havoc with their feeding grounds and many of them are winding up beached due to exhaustion and starvation. The lifeguards and Sea World pick up 3-4 a day and rehab them back to health…
