On our last day in the Cruz over the 4th, we took the trolly down to the Boardwalk to give Jace one more visit to the beach. I didn’t get my fried oreo or corn dog like normal, but I got to watch Jace be a wild man on the beach. He stole a volleyball, lost some toys in the ocean and got stuck in the sand. It was awesome. It was also interesting changing him on the sidewalk in front of the whole world. Good thing we ended this last trek to the beach with some 1020 ice-cream from Marianne’s. I sure do miss our life in California and that exciting boardwalk. And the smell of the ocean and the cool breeze. Everything. For now, I’ll hold on to pictures and memories!
