A Beachy Saturday


I don't really consider myself a beach person.  It's too crowded.  Parking sucks.  It get's too hot when the sun is beaming down on you.  West Coast water is pretty chilly year round and there is too much sand.  It's everywhere and it gets into everything.  I'm sounding way too much like my Dad with all that complaining so I'll stop there. I know how lucky I am to live here.
What I DO love about the beach is the beautiful ocean.  The constant roar of crashing waves is soothing and it's just a really relaxing place to be.  And all that messy sand actually does kinda feel good between my toes.  Saturday's weather was so perfect that even I couldn't say no to a beach day.  We live so close there is no reason we can't get in at least one during the Summer.

So off we went.  Just the two of us.  When we showed up at around 11am there was plenty of parking and hardly anyone was there.  We have access to Breakers Beach on Coronado Island.  One of the best things about this beach is that it's on base so not everyone can go there.  It doesn't get nearly as crowded as the other beaches.  And it's one of the prettiest ones around.


That giant umbrella really saves the day for me.  I hate sweltering in the sun like a rotisserie chicken.  I can't do it anymore but thanks to the half tent I don't have to.  I'm so glad we bought that thing.  We brought Subway sandwiches and healthy snacks to munch on.  I finally drank that mini Sutter Home wine bottle which I kid you not, has been in my refrigerator for a year just waiting for the perfect outing AND for me not to forget to bring the darn thing.  I could have drank it at home a long time ago but my hoarder side wouldn't let me.  I dipped my lower legs in the water. That was plenty because it was freezing and I'm kinda nervous about what's IN the water. I plowed through 5 magazines that had been piling up and beach naps are so amazing! Mj did some body boarding.  He was still pulling seaweed out of his shorts when we got home.



And because you really can't take too many weekend naps as far as I'm concerned I had another post sun drenched beach nap after we got home.  And I took one on Sunday too.  Later that night we cuddled at home on the couch and watched a movie.    

It was a pretty perfect easy breezy beach day and a great weekend despite those annoying errands I had to do on Sunday.  I really like the beach.  I just wish I could get rid of some of the sand. And make the water warmer.

Sounds like the perfect Saturday! I had a beach day this weekend too! It was perfect weather and the perfect thing for the end of a busy week. I love the night after a day spent out on the beach, exhausted, slightly burnt, laying under a cool fan drifting off to sleep. One of my favorite things!

West Coast beaches scare me (huge waves, shark potential, etc). Caribbean waters for me, please!

Your muscles are out of control!

I totally agree...I am not a huge fan of crowds, parking, sun...good thing I'm moving out of LA, right? LOL

You look amazing in every pic! Seriously.

I'm not a big beach bum, either. For one thing, I live 4 hours from the sand. But when I do go I complain about the same things: roasting in the sun, crowds, seaweed (yuck!). Still, something about the beach is good for the soul! In small doses, right?

Coronado is our favorite beach! So, so lovely :) We beached it on Saturday too at Swami's. It was a little more overcast where we were -- looks like the weather there was lovely!

Michelle said...

Can I just tell you how freaking gorgeous you look in your swimsuit! I wish I had the confidence to just post all sorts of photos of me in a bikini walking around on the beach!

I'm jealous that you have beach around you! We have a pool but no sand to speak of in Arizona :)

Girl, you are looking so HOT in that bikini. Your body is amazing. You need to go to the beach more often ;)

Looks like you an MJ had an awesome time

I love the beach or at least I love the heat and doing nothing all day.

Steph said...

If my body looked like yours, I'd be at the beach every weekend.

Looks like a great time!

Rachel Lynne said...

Looks like you had an amazing day at the beach! AND HOLY CRAP GIRL! That body... DANG!

Ashley R said...

You're looking amazing! I know exactly the beach you are talking about... it so beautiful! When they opened up the area nearby for camping, we had to try it. Beautiful!

Janna Renee said...

A) That first picture looks like a Sutter Home advertisement, and B) you look like a freakin' fitness model! Beautiful!

Carla said...

Whoa!! That body! You are so toned.

Looked like an awesome day to go to the beach!

Laura B @ Walking in Memphis in High Heels said...

I didn't notice anything other than your smoking hot body. ; )

Whitney Cypert said...

What a fun weekend! I'm not really a beach person but sometimes I wish we lived closer to the beach just to be able to go a couple times when I was feelin' it. Loving you in that fedora, SO CUTE!

Faith said...

you are stunning! let me borrow your belly for a day or two :)

Kim Jackson said...

Cece your body looks amazing!!! Everything you have been doing to become more healthy and fit is really paying off!

I love the beach. Which is ironic, because I can't swim and I'm allergic to sand LOL. But there is something about the sun and the water--they're both calming for me. So I get there as much as I can in the summer.

Glad you had a great time even after all the things you said you don't love about it. LOL.
