I miss beach days like this! I (Bridget) used to live in Marina Del Rey for 5 years as a single mother. I gravitated towards other single moms and we created amazing friendships that have lasted all these years. I love to put together gatherings with us, whether it was at my house, the park or the beach! Since I currently live in the desert (2.5 hours away from the beach), we took advantage of being closer this week at our RV resort. So I picked up our two older girls and we met everyone at the beach. I haven’t seen everyone together like this in about 5 years and it was the best feeling. I felt a little regret leaving the over priced house I was renting in the Marina Del Rey area but LA rental prices are out of control for the average income. So I promised all my mom friends we would do this beach day once a month. I have to keep these kids bonded in these crazy times and allow them some familiarity and fun. The temperature was 70 degrees. I thought to myself, well I live in the Palm Springs area where it is 114, I can take 70 degrees anyday! Well I forgot that in the desert I cover my face with a hat every day and so I burned my face at the beach smh. We went to eat at our favorite outdoor restaurant and had a blast. I can’t wait for the next beach day! The picture below shows the top picture from 5 years ago, the bottom from this weekend. Love seeing them grow!
