I love the light and the colors and the boys! launching and it’s up! with very little wind and a lot of work. while we were all watching the kite’s flight… Seth found a friend. He put his face a little too close to this cormorant and got a scratched forhead for a greeting! I didn’t see it happen, but there were lots of people gathered to watch this beautiful bird and when they learned that Seth is my son, they shared the incident. Seth wasn’t phased in the least and the cormorant went back to sea. Clara needed daddy’s help to see where the bird went. I love this shot of Ethan enjoying the beach! Clara enjoying the sand! :-) Ian and Clara Vanessa bringing the kids and some treasures back from scavenging :-) Jerome making his way back to the car :-) Santa Barbara harbor the end of a wonderful, beautiful, memorable day!

Veronique, thanks for sharing! Makes me miss SB and the guy family. I love the snake shots though I really wanted to see one of you with a snake wrapped around your shoulders!
