We went to Moonstone beach late Sunday afternoon. The weather was gorgeous – warm, sunny, breezy – total perfection. Happy people and joyful dogs cavorted. Naked babies played in the sand. Kids splashed in the shallows of the freshwater creek. Rock climbers scaled the Moon Stone. My guys were all promptly magnetized into the ocean waves. They shared the boogy board and did some body surfing. I stoically held down the blanket with my behind and basked in the gentle light.

Young Son and Family Man smile into the evening sun

Brother leaps off a big rock into the sand

Days like this one fill me with gratitude for the incredible place where we live. Heaven really is here on Earth.
