This is one of a few pictures I was able to take of Katherine with Rebecca during our first visit to Huntington Beach with her.
We spent a bit of time on the beach so that she could experience the sand and the surf for the first time.
I didn’t make it to the Pacific ocean until I was 26. This was also her first trip on a jet airplane. I was 21 before I first flew on a jet. Then again, my grandparents didn’t live in California like Katherine’s does.
She didn’t seem to mind the sand on her feet. She just seemed curious about it. This was pretty much her same reaction to the waves. Curious, but not fearful.
