It was soooo cold at the beach, but that did not stop some of us from getting soaked. we snacked, played games, and raced the waves!!!! Our pixie gift was the perfect game for all the kids. And by kids I mean ALL the boys, no matter how old. They tried to see who could get the nerf arrow to fly the highest. While we tried to avoid the ENORMOUS amounts of seaweed on the sand. The storms had done a real number all throughout Monterey, trees were down everywhere, electricity hardly existed, we had a hard time getting cream cheese at the stores because it had all been"destroyed." Church was interesting with generators giving us light. But it was still fun!!!
