One of the things I look forward to the most in the summer, are impromptu days at the beach. The lovely thing about San Francisco, is the close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. It’s a giant sand box for my son and I can relax and lounge while he is in beach heaven.
There isn’t too much planning involved – I just pack up snacks (required with a toddler) and roll up my Hedgehouse throwbeds and head for one of the many beaches we have here. I love being able to relax on the cloud-like softness of mattresses made of down and feathers. And I don’t have to worry about sand since they have covers that can be cleaned. I find shaking them out after a beach visit is all I need to do. I also bring along a towel in case my son and I decide to wade into the ocean. My favorite towel (beyond beautiful!) is the Hedgehouse Travel Towels in a large blue and white stripe. Seriously, what says summer more than blue and white stripes!
We’ll be taking advantage of being a family of three this Memorial Day weekend before baby girl arrives – I’m hoping the fog breaks for a little beach trip. Do you have any plans this holiday weekend? I probably won’t be going on any big trips this summer with a baby arriving in a few weeks, but I know I can have perfect days right here at home!
