ABC Wednesday / "O" and Watery Wednesday / Balboa Beach, California USA

My little grandson stopped his sand play to observe the lifeguard truck driving down the beach.

He offered a shell to me that he found in the sand.

"Here he comes, we better get out of the way!"
It must be nice spending the day just driving up and down the sand along the ocean.

"He's back...I guess we don't have to get out of the way."

 The pier is over  the water and my head!


The theme is "O."

Your grandson is so cute. I wish my great nephew and great niece lived closer so I could spend more time with them. That last picture of your grandson is really nice.

How lucky that you get to spend so much time with your grandson (and give him back at the end of the day)! And, man oh, man, is that not a great shot of him under the pier? Award winning shot, I say!

He is Oh, so adorable! What great memories you are making with him. We are trying to create good memories with our granddaughter too.

Carolyn, you made me smile on your comment. I am still recovering from my hike and I am sleepy yet I can't sleep and I still wake up at 5 am, work 8 hrs and do house chores! Isn't blogging so addicting? Isn't Newport a far drive from you?

Its called women's lib and good retirement!

Hello again Carolyn. The old building in my photos is part of the homestead that is being used as a hostel. It looks like it's a storage shed. The actual house that people stay in is also very old but much larger and in way better condition. It's a very interesting place since it's away from everything in the middle of a state park.

This site has some reviews and a picture of the house.

Is he going to be a volunteer lifeguard when he grows up? We have a lot of them here, especially school kids when they turn 15.

SquirrelQueen said...

He is so cute. The two of you must have had a wonderful day at the beach. His smile in the last photo under the pier is priceless.
