We didn't have enough time to go to both the beach and Chinatown so we went to the beach. If you couldn't tell, it was cold and windy. The 'natives' were walking around in hoodies and jackets, staring at the crazy tourists in their swimsuits.
Jaron, Brooke & Carly were the only ones brave enough to enter the frigid waters. Hypothermia just doesn't sound like too much fun, especially on vacation. The girls were brave enough to get in up to their knees. You can tell they hadn't been in the water yet, they were still smiling.
Poor little Jaron got rocked by the water. While boogie boarding he got pulled under and drug on the bottom, twice. His back was a little bloody, by the second time he was done. We cleaned him up and were on our way.
On our way back to Citrus Heights we stopped off at the Jelly Belly Factory. For FUN! Jaron says his favorite part was "The jelly beans". My favorite was the little spoon things that the workers had, they would walk around a dish out a single bean to the people in line. They were the coolest little spoons, I want one! Its official, Jaron has a favorite Jelly Belly, Pink Grapefruit. We like the fruits, mine is still Juicy Pear.
They had a fun snack bar, everything was in the shape of a bean. Carly got some mango ice cream and shared with the fam, it was really yummy.
