The cabins where we stayed at Crystal Cove are rented out on a first come, first serve basis, and since there aren't very many available, they rent out quickly. Ian's dad and sister got on the internet on the first available minute of the first available day to rent cabins, and managed to get three rooms in a dorm-style cabin for our family. We found out when we got there that getting three rooms together is rare enough to be almost unheard of, so we were extremely lucky. Even so, the cabins get rented so fast that Ian's sister and dad were unable to rent their first choice, which would have been a single cabin for all of us. We each had our own rooms, but we shared a common dining area and bathrooms with other families renting the place. The rooms also all had twin bunk beds, so it was not exactly a love nest.
Still, it is hard to complain about much of anything when this is the view from your kitchen window in the morning.
Max and Joseph found novel ways to combine enjoying the view with some quality peek-a-boo time.
Two handsome Tillman boys.
We went for some really amazing beach walks together. Max got a little freaked out whenever we got too close to the water -- the noise and the spray seemed to bother him a bit -- but he loved walking along the beach, people-watching and exploring the sand. He did a fair amount of flirting with people going by, too -- he is becoming somewhat too aware of his overwhelming cuteness.
