We went to the beach every day during our stay in Carpenteria. Every morning I wore a bikini under my clothes in the hopes that it would be warm enough to swim. On the day we took these shots I wore pale blue printed jeans, a chambray top and sandals to match. The sun warmed up the beach for a few hours that afternoon but not enough to remove the layers. By the time we took these photos the fog had rolled in and it was quite chilly. We loaded sandy kids and beach gear into the car with my parents, then my husband and I headed back to the hotel on foot. I was glad for the shirt, but wished I’d brought a sweater too. To make walking easy I changed my convertible canvas bag from a cross body to a backpack, but I couldn’t do much about the shoes. They’re comfortable but not especially practical for walking on dirt paths.
Train tracks run right near the beach Carpenteria. The sound of the train lends this already beautiful stretch of coast an old fashioned charm but it also makes getting from the beach to the town a bit more complicated than it would be otherwise. As my husband and I strolled along trying to find a way over the tracks we stumbled on this tunnel and, thinking it was quite scenic, we stopped for some shots before heading into town.
Disclosure: Except for the backpack, which was a gift from Skinny Vinny, I purchased all of these clothes with my own money and was not compensated for the post by the brands I recommend.
