we spent one of the teen's last few days of summer vacation down at the beach, with her friend rock-ell and the bean. we headed down to huntington beach one day after i got back from work and made a beeline for one of those trolley rental booths. for $25, we got to ride around in this for an hour:
the bean really liked kickin' it in the front seat.
the beach was gorgeous that day, although the water was fri-hi-gid. didn't stop us from dipping our toes in, at least.
the line was a little ridiculous, though. i'm such a sucker.
it looked just like the one we'd visited in charleston a few weeks earlier.
although this one was adorned with customer-decorated postcards that proclaimed it "better than in-n-out." BLASPHEMY!
and then somehow, as we were heading home, i remembered that the get shaved food truck - offering authentic hawaiian shave ice - was going to be stopped in pomona. again, on our way home. whee! i was excited to pop my food truck cherry.
beach, bike, burgers, and our first food truck experience. pretty awesome day, i'd say.
