Huntington Beach

A long time ago, in what seems a world away, there was a little girl named Sandy whose parents decided to move to Huntington Beach. Sandy loved the area - she loved her friends, school, church, of course her family, and the beach! While growing up she spent hours exploring the sea and sand, collecting sea shells, and marveling at the vast expanse of the blue, blue ocean.

Later the beach became her 'play ground' as she would go as frequently as possible, basting herself in the sun with baby oil, frolicking in the waves, having bonfires, and going on a grunion run or two. Ah, the life of a teenager with few cares in the world! How she loved being at the beach!

Eventually the beach became a place of comfort and peace for her. Just the scent of the sandy ocean air, and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore can bring a smile to her face - making her feel true joy at this wonderful creation that she has been so blessed to enjoy throughout her life.

love sharing my love for the beach with my family!
I am grateful for Huntington Beach; that I could live there, grow, learn, and figure out what was truly important in my life. This little girl is all grown up and is grateful for Huntington Beach and the part it played in that process.
