A Day at Manhattan Beach



It's hard to believe, but Saturday was our first beach excursion this summer, and it was the last day of July.

We drove about 20 minutes down to Manhattan Beach and had a really peaceful time watching CC play in the waves and build sandcastles near our towels.

I brought along my Flip video camera -- the one that shoots in HD -- but somehow the moment seemed nicer as a grainy-looking film from the distant past. Maybe that's my nostalgia talking.

Anyway, I marveled at modern technology. Even while using an HD camera, you can still make an image look as if it were filmed in 1975. Pretty cool.

After our day at the beach, we headed over to our new discovery, Menchie's Frozen Yogurt. It's an adorable kid-friendly shop, where you can make your own yogurt creation and not feel too guilty about the calories.

Laura, we loooove Menchie's!! We have so many of them close-by! So we have been there many many times. We did the beach and Menchie's a couple of weeks ago too! -I guess we've been kind of on the same line of things LOL!
