The Perfect 4th of July!

 What a fabulous day! It began around noon with a hike from the Hang Glider Port in La Jolla down the cliff trail to the beach below. No pictures of the beach or surf. I was too busy body surfing, walking on the beach and visiting with the wonderful group of beach and ocean lovers. These people have been going to this same beach for more than 30 years. They have seen most their kids grow into adulthood and a new generation of children starting their lives happily spending time at the ocean.
 After a day playing in the water and rousing vollyball games on the beach, everyone hikes back to the top for a pot luck and BBQ. With a campfire after Sunset.
The sunset. Just about over.

Someone had a huge box of glow necklaces and handed them out to everyone. The campfire was lit and we watched 4 different fireworks shows up and down the coastline. Perfect!

Me, my daughter Jennifer and her sweetheart, Steve.

Good Idea Kate!

Inspired by Kate McKinnon's blog about eating lunch in her yard, I decided to take my lunch outside as well. The biggest difference is the temperature. It is a cloudy, breezy and cool day in Lemon Grove today. I am having a beer with my Carnitas rather than wine. Beer and Mexican food just works!

Too often I eat inside and don't take time to enjoy my lovely yard. So, inspired by you, Kate, here I am on the verandah, listening to my audio book, and the waterfall in the pond, the birds chirping in the background. Lunch: Carnitas from Por Favor Restaurant here in Lemon Grove. The best Carnitas in the world in my opinion. An entire avocado, cut up and lightly salted with sea salt and light, crispy tortilla chips with salsa. A delicious Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat beer with a squeeze and a slice of orange. Luxurious! I must make it a point to come out to my lovely garden to eat more often.
