Sea Lane Beach

Posted on Jul 23, 2012 in Family

I heard someone yell my name, “Frank!” as I was slowly backing my way out of my parking space.  I was on my way to run some errands and while I barely heard my name through the car window, I decided to stop and look to see if indeed someone was trying to stop me.  Then up the street I saw her and some familiar faces – Mary, Lucy, Irish and Charlie were running up to my car.  What a pleasant surprise.  They told me that they were on their way down to Sea Lane beach (the street on my beach) to do some swimming and to hang out for a couple of hours.  Well, needless to say I put my errands on hold and decided to bring my camera down and take some photos of the family at the beach.  It’s July here so the sun is shining and everyday is a perfect beach day.

I brought my bright red umbrella down to the beach because I really hate sitting on in the sun and baking.  Mary gladly took shade under the umbrella happy to have it so she could watch Irish and Charlie swim without having the hot sun on her face.

I remembered about 5 years ago in the same spot we were sitting I took a picture of Irish, Charlie and Lucy running down the beach to the water. That was in July as well so I decided to try to re-enact the scene as best I could.  Well, I messed up the order I discovered when I got home and looked at the original picture but it was still fun. I think Lucy is twice as tall now.

Irish and Charlie are tremendous athletes and do flips pretty much all over San Diego.  We decided to do some flips on the beach.  Some girl came up to Charlie and asked to do some flips with them too.

Charlie was doing some massive flips, you can see the determination on his face to land each one – which he did on his feet.

Irish did some incredible flips as well. In this shot it looks like he is flying straight down from the sky.  He got so high, went upside down and still landed on his feet – amazing.

And there is Mary, looking smashing on the beach in her Oakley glasses which she took from Irish while he was performing circus jumps

Everyone says Mary and Lucy are twins. I think so, what do you think?

Those Giron’s love their awkward family photos.  Here they are posing around the red umbrella.

They call him handsome Charlie.  Why do they call him handsome Charlie?  Well because he is handsome like Rock Hudson and James Dean.

Before we left the beach, Irish wanted one last shot. He called the shot “Illuminati” which I seem to remember being something Tupac started years ago.
