The beach and other luxuries...

It may seem an odd pairing, a serene beachscape next to two tanks. Taken on the same beach, this contrast is why I enjoy visiting Del Mar beach on Camp Pendleton whenever my family camps there on vacation. The military presence is what affords us the luxury of words like serenity, peace and...freedom.

My little bro, Chhay, age nine and one of my favorite persons to hang out with!

I took 56 shots before I got this one. I was shooting and at the same time throwing and sometimes faking to throw handfuls of spaghetti in the air, haha. I was pretty popular, until the spaghetti ran out.

My Mom found a shark that had passed and washed up on the beach. Don't know what kind it was or why it died, but was only about 3 1/2 feet long. Ever the explorer, upon dissected it, she found it was carrying three, perfectly formed babies about 7 inches long each.
