Vacation in Solana Beach, CA

Our dear friends from Folsom, CA met up with us for a few fine days on the beach. It was good to see them again and "catch" up. As always a joy to be among friends.

The view overlooking the beach from our beach house condo. There were three pools on the property. Two on the bluff overlooking the ocean. We were very pleased with the place even though it was quite a climb carrying the beach equipment up and down the four flights of stairs. :)

Marianne, Dad and Peter getting ready to hit the waves.

Peter "pulling" Dad out to the waves on the boggie board. Tom had knee surgery earlier in June so he was in need of a little help.

Plenty of shade and plenty of sun!

Shayna enjoying some sun!

Everyone seems to be having a good time!

A game of cards anyone? :)

A little excercise anyone? Some of us took early morning runs or walks on the beach during low tide. We played smashball, threw footballs, buried ourselves in the sand BUT most of all caught some waves, some sun and had a lot of great family time.

Grandpa and Grandma taking their turns with their first grandbaby . . . ASHTON! What a cute little guy! Cool Dudes on the left and catching some zzzz's below. :)

Katie holding Ashton. Marianne getting to catch some waves. Catching some sun rays and Kim just got a lot shorter? Peter what are you doing?

Catching a sunset is sometimes difficult because of the cloud cover. This one was a beauty though! We all had a great time in Solana Beach!

We all went out to eat at a Chinese buffet with Grandma and Grandpa Bell. Cody was with us too.

Four generations of Bell guys!
