Well, when you live close by, it would be a shame not to spend a decent amount of time there. Right?!

First stop: Dippin’ Dots.  Yummo!

Then it was off to look at the ocean, walk around the boardwalk and have a look at a couple of galleries.

Before heading out for an early dinner at what has become one of our family favorites, The Fish Hopper.

Where Marisol decided to copy her brother and stick crayons into her straw.  She was quite pleased with herself.

And of course you can’t forget about dessert.  This time we made our way to the Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop.

we love to go to the fish hopper when we are over your way! fuy story though, the last time we went, our 7 year old was munching on her bread and sort of hung it out over the ledge on the deck there while she was talking…a seagull came down and about took her hand off to get the bread! she was so shocked…she sat there like a statue!
