It’s October 10th, which means it’s time for 10 on 10! Honestly, I haven’t had my “big” camera out for personal family events lately other than kid soccer games. And since I featured that in September, I thought I’d share an amazing evening my family had just this past weekend, documented entirely with my iPhone.
It was incredibly hot here in L.A. on Sunday (the thermometer reached 90 degrees here at the beach). Since we don’t have A/C at home, we decided to get out and make it an afternoon at the beach. So, we loaded up the bikes and headed for the sand. Boy were we in for a treat! We got down to the beach at ultra low tide. . . lowest we’ve ever seen it. So we enjoyed frolicking on the wide, glassy shores and the viewing magnificent sea stars that were clinging to the beach rocks typically hidden under water.
As sunset drew near, we hopped back on our bikes and headed a little ways north to the fire pits at Dockweiler State Beach. We had packed provisions for smores and it was time to check “roasting marshmallows on the beach” off of our bucket list!
The real treat, however, was the sunset. My 4-year-old looked up and said, “it’s like lava in the sky!”
The sky just kept getting more and more spectacular and we left the beach just as the crescent moon started shining brightly in the west. A perfect end to a perfect family adventure!
