Golden Gate Bridge and Beach Photos

The family weekend vacation to San Francisco was a lot of fun. We only went for the weekend, but it was enough. We ate at a pho restaurant, hot pot place, a pizza place, and In-and-Out Burger. We drove down the coast to Big Sur and spent a few minutes at Montara Beach just soaking our feet in the Pacific Ocean water. The kids (teenagers now, of course) got a little soaked when the waves came in a little further than expected. There was another beach along the way where we heard, later that evening on the news, a surfer was bitten by a baby shark. We almost considered going to that beach but it was closed when we passed it (due to the incident as we learned later) on our way to Montara. The weather during our stay was cloudy, but the sun did show up for a few hours.

Aquarium and a Digital Art Journal

Earlier in the week the family went to the Downtown Aquarium in Denver with one of my sisters, her boyfriend, and one of my brothers and his kids.  I’ve been wanting to go for awhile but just never seemed to have the time (or the funds).  I’m glad that my sister was determined to get me to go because it was a lot of fun, especially for my girls + she paid for my girls so I am very grateful (thanks again, Jamie!).

Here are photos from the aquarium:

Digital Art Journal: Faith

Since today’s topic is on creatures of the sea (water/ocean/sea), I thought I’d also share a digital art journal piece I’ve created for a challenge at Hummie’s World that has something to do with water.  You can read more about the challenge and see my drawings at my design blog, here.
