On September 13, 2013, approximately two weeks after Judy and Gary Kruger’s 50th wedding anniversary, we drove down to the town where we spent a few summers in the late 70s and early 80s. The weather was slightly worse than we expected, but the house we rented was slightly better than we expected. It was perfect! This is the view from the deck. We were right on the beach!
The kitchen was set up with everything we would need to cook for 7 people.
The gas fireplace was cozy…
…and they had video games.
Here’s the house from beach.
But really we were here to walk the beach, look at the boats (Gary) and enjoy our time together. We headed north up the beach toward the jetty, half moon bay and Westhaven.
Throwing in a couple scenic photos…
Judy looking younger than her 50 years of marriage would have you believe.
We made it to the jetty. Click on this one for a large panorama.
We ran around on this jetty every day when we were young.
Now it was time for some portraits.
Heidi made my parents do this. It was pretty cute.
Happy sisters at the beach.
The bride and groom.
Here we were only missing Mike and Jessica…and Lulu.
Glenda almost at Half Moon Bay.
After walking around Westhaven, getting denied at the donut shop and being attacked by a million mosquitos on the road, we decided to head back out through the old bird sanctuary to the beach. There were a bunch of mosquitos here, too.
This is the terrain we walked through for about an hour.
Finally made it to the beach trail. Whew.
Heidi enjoyed the beach.
Mike and Jessica showed up the next day after soccer practice. They have pretty tough feet. That is some seriously cold water.
Jessica liked the beach fort.
As you can see, the weather wasn’t the greatest, but it was fun and it reminded us of the summers living down here.
The beach grasslands were beautiful.
This is the trail from our house to the beach.
The next day we took a drive down the coast to Washaway Beach, looked at the cranberry bogs and ate a fun dinner at a restaurant I was craving.
I think they ended up having a pretty great time.
To the top…
