Sunday night Rich wanted to go for a drive.  We loaded up the car with the kids and the dog and drove...2 minutes to Pelican Bay.

  I guess we just love that place too much to stay away.

*Simple photo tip- when shooting a landscape, move your camera setting to the icon that looks like a mountain.  It's an easy way to get a large depth of field, so the entire picture is sharper.

 It's just a little marina with a couple of docks, some barbeque pits, a 25 foot stretch of man made beach, and some walking trails.  The last time we came here was in July, and it was packed.  The parking lot was overflowing; trucks towing boats were lined up down the street waiting to get in.  This time we nearly had the place to ourselves.

London tripped and scraped her little knee.

 We decided if we took a picture of it, she would feel better.

 It worked.

Ya gotta love the power of the camera.

You can really see the similarity from this angle- round, nearly bald heads.

Fendi takes a break from being lead around (and around) by the 4 year old. 

We basked in the serenity of the dusk until the light breeze went away. Then we ran for the shelter of our car to get away from the hoards of mosquitoes that appeared out of nowhere.

 (I'm pretty sure that's a bug on Handsome Jack's face).

Does your family have a place you like to spend time together at?  Do tell.

I have never been to Pelican Bay, man, I'm really missing out. Seriously, it's beautiful there. Thank you for the camera tip. I need to start using all the cool different settings I have more.

I'm gonna have to use the magical powers of the camera to heal wounds around here! We go through band aids almost as fast as I go through Diet Coke around here!

Beautiful family and dog!

Oh, and we always love going to the mountains-Silver Lake seems to be visited often.
