Red California Tides + Pirates Treasure Found on the Beach

Another day, another dive.

Our family has been going to the beach after homeschool in search of new sea animals and sea plants.

It has been mild temperature wise and in the 80s, so we have been frequenting the beach often as the wind makes it feel like the 70 degree weather.

Typically the wind gives a 10 to 15 degree temperature lower than what is shown on your local thermometer reading.

We found that there was a partial red tide due to the algae overgrowth. More about it on Patch here.

At first we called it a Crimson Tide but quickly realized that’s just the 1995  movie with Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman about the Cuban Missile crisis, check it out it.

Many families and friends have been visiting the beach more often now that most restaurants, parks, schools and after school programs are cancelled. Therefore many have decided to make lemonade out of lemons and head to the beach!

When arriving at the beach we social distanced about 20 feet away from others, and brought a picnic lunch with snacks and plenty of water too to nourish ourselves during the stay.

We brought plastic bags of Apple Jack’s and Fruit Loops, 4 bananas, baked chicken, 3 bottles of water and 4 Larabars, the Cashew Cookie flavor.

There are some shady characters roaming the beach and trying to spark conversation, but it is important to try and stay as far away from others as you do not know where they have been.  Some may be high risk for COVID, so best to wear a mask and keep your distance.

With that we still were able to have fun, and dug for treasure!

We found a pink frisbee, a red sand castle toy, a small green army man plastic figurine, a scuba diver minion, a pumpkin seed, a small pink plastic sifter, 2 dinosaurs and an plastic yellow ball.

We were very surprised to see that so many families forgot their toys!

The California coast is amazing and so serene, check out the waves here.

We decided to put on SPF 50 during our stay, and came prepped with 4 sunglasses and hats as well.

California is known for it’s high UV index it’s good to bring back up sunscreen as you need to reapply per the SPF rating. Therefore if you put on SPF 50 you need to reapply every 50 minutes. That could be an old wives tale, but we try to hit that mark and usually never get burned.

Have you been to the beach?

10 Inexpensive Ways to Enjoy Fall

Times are tough.

Many are on a limited budget and living with children, elders, and spouses and wondering what the heck to do this fall with our weird flu issues.

Here are some great ideas to get you out and about in order to treat yourself and your senses.

1. Nature Walk

Everyone loves nature and specifically now the leaves are changing from green to red to orange to yellow to brown. It is a great time to frolick about nature and soak in the true essence of nature and all it’s healing beauty.

2. Watch the Waves

The ocean is a force to be reckoned with and we’ve fully enjoyed walking by the sea shore and admiring the waves. It’s a great time to appreciate water and relax the senses.

3. Build a Sandcastle

When in roam on the beach, building sandcastles is a nice way to be creative while settling into nature.

4. Make the House Smell of Cinnamon

If you have some extra cinnamon in the house, along with a pot of water, set it on the stove on low heat for 10 minutes and your house will smell of fresh baked cinnamon buns without the calories.

5. Splurge on a Pumpkin Spiced Latte from Starbucks

Nothing like a drive thru Starbicks to perk you right up, while enjoying the fall essences of pumpkin, spice, and everything nice.

6. Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

You can buy an inexpensive pumpkin at your local farm direct or check out your local grocer and buy a pumpkin. Here you can cut the pumpkin, pull out the seeds, place on a pan, cover in salt, and roast for 45 minutes at 300 degrees.

7. Decorate a Pumpkin

If it’s too soon for a Jack o lantern, use markers, glue, tissue paper, and design a mock pumpkin. Get creative! Animals, people or objects are fun to make and easy to create.

8. Make a Homemade Fall Wreath

You can use dried leaves, sticks, flowers, or whatever you want to create a nice fall wreath for your front door. It’s welcoming and people love to see the festivity as it makes them smile.

9. Visit Your Local Farm

Then buy something! It’s great to support your local farmers!

10. Take a Bike Ride

This is a great way to see what is going on in your community, but also a great way to get the blood flowing and your natural endorphins up!

What are you doing this fall?
