I don’t think that I would be the only one to say that this winter, in California, has been one for the books. Cold and rainy has been the norm. To us Californians, 50 degrees is COLD, we are total wusses, but it’s fine. The Shaw Family came to California from Northern Idaho for a fun beach/Disneyland vacation, to escape their winter wonderland for a minute. Who knew they would come during our coldest, wettest winter in my memory? But we found a break in the downpour for some fun portrait on the beach and pier in Manhattan Beach. It turned out beautifully! No amount of California rain or cold was going to get this cute family down!
