The Baker Beach Connection

In all of my years living in the Bay Area, I cannot believe I’ve never been to Baker Beach.

Well, scratch that. I rarely went to the beach and my friends and I were always out at the clubs so okay, I can believe it.

The girls and I had a great time when we saw the Giants play in September and we had time to go to the beach before the game.

What is it about the ocean? I grew up minutes from the ocean and was fortunate that our last duty station was right on the Chesapeake Bay. There’s just something about the Pacific air that activates a calming sensation in my brain. Fortunately, the ocean has the same affect on the girls.

The girls didn’t want to leave for the game and I didn’t blame them.

Wasn’t the World Series exciting? I’m glad we got a chance to see the Giants play several times this season, thanks to the generosity of Operation Care and Comfort. I just have so many memories of watching baseball on the tube with my dad that I wanted that tradition passed on to our kids.

It’s safe to say I’m raising Giants fans!

We couldn’t stay for the whole game. Little L just isn’t used to the cold weather despite a hat and sweater on. She also isn’t used to staying up past 7:30 pm! Nevertheless, I still think we had a fab time!
