Today was a gorgeous day at the beach. Merrik has been begging us to go to the beach but it’s been so cold. He loves to go in the ocean no matter what but I just can’t psych myself into it when it’s cold and damp out. I took him last week and it was very warm but since then it’s been pretty chilly. Today was finally a break in the cold damp weather so we headed down to Linda Lane for a bike ride on the trail and a dip in the 57º ocean. Even Maliea wouldn’t stay away from the water.
