There is a huge play structure, fountains to splash in, 
public pianos and of course a great ice cream shop.

Libby brought Tanner to Capitola for the first time this week and

We had a long, fun 4th of July starting with an early flight to 
California and waiting for our ride to come.  Elsie and 
Mary Danielle decided they would try dancing for donations.
After a busy day at the beach being the youngest 
Brea and Warren are relegated to the floor.
The only fireworks we saw were some that were set 
outside our condo.  It was plenty for this tired Tutu.

This is pretty much the state of the condo while 
there were five people living in a small space.  We are 
catching a flight to the mainland tonight so most of the 
clutter will be gone.  Photo credit goes to Elsie.
