First of all, thank you for your feedback for my giveaway. Since it’s my first one, I didn’t really have any idea of what to expect. But I appreciate hearing your thoughts, and I can’t wait until the end where I get to find out who wins! My 14-year-old boy cousin decided that he was going to enter as a joke, knowing very well that the selection is random. I promise that if his name is selected, I’ll choose another winner.
In other news, I arrived at Dillon Beach today! My family is staying in a house on the beach for a little less than a week. I’ve been here before; a couple of years ago for Thanksgiving, but at a different house. I must admit that I sort of forgot what it was like. I’ll try to explain it in one word. Beautiful. Well, and cold. Two words. Beautiful and cold.
For those who may not know, Dillon Beach is a little beach/beach town located in Northern California on the Pacific Ocean. It’s close in location to Bodega Bay, Tomales, Petaluma, and Point Reyes, although the town itself is not very big. Rows of colorful beach houses stand along the grassy cliffs – some large and extravagant, others smaller and compact. Our house is the perfect size. I didn’t take any pictures of it, as I didn’t want this post to be an episode of MTV Cribs. To be honest, I didn’t really take any pictures of the journey, either. But when we arrived, as you can see, my cousins and I had a little bit of a photoshoot.
The weather is also COLD. Although California and cold are not typically synonyms, the temperature here tops out at around 70 degrees F, which is such a nice break from the 100F weather we’ve been having back home. I almost forgot what it was like to be cold. Sweatshirts and sweatpants, anybody?
Since we arrived around 4 p.m., not much has happened today. We settled into our house, took the dog to the beach for the first time, and had dinner at a little restaurant in Tomales called William Tell House. The food was good; there were so many different options. My cousin and I had a grilled chicken sandwich, my mom had fish and chips, my dad had lamb, and my other cousin and my brother had pizza. There was basically something for everyone, which I love in a restaurant. That way, everybody is happy.
That’s pretty much it for this post. I will hopefully have more to tell tomorrow, and the next few days. Speaking of which, I forgot to mention that I’ll be daily blogging every day that I’m in DB as long as my WiFi holds up. Which is another topic – my WiFi is very bad, so I won’t be able to read many if any of your posts. But I will get to them when I get home. I always do!
See you tomorrow.
