This summer, my family and I are heading west to San Diego for a well needed vacation. We are renting a house which is a short walk to the beach. Of course we plan to visit the usual tourist traps, but we are most excited to hit the beach. The cool salty waters and beaches sounds great to this desert dweller. I will be sharing this entire vacation in a few posts on this blog. But until then, I will get ready for the beach with a look back at last year's vacation in Virginia with Sharon.
