A Weekend at the Brucker's

A Fourth of July Photo

A late entry that I really like from the camera of Vanessa Contreras.

Over the past two weeks things have been relatively calm in Camarillo. The highlight was a trip to Newport Beach to visit our college chums Loren and Sandy Brucker and their family for a beautiful water weekend.

 Jacob was styling!

Jack and Laney are the Brucker's grandchildren.

Pay no attention to the man buried in the sand by his son.

After a quiet Friday on the Bay side of the Newport Peninsula, on Saturday we all headed to the Beach!

By the end of the day, Jacob had developed a very healthy respect for the power of the Pacific Ocean.

 Tug Boat

On Sunday, the group opted for a self-guided cruise of Balboa Bay.

But not on a tug boat.

 We would rent a craft here
