Photo Pairs: Surf and Turf

Last weekend, my daughter's track team competed at a meet in the California beach town of Santa Barbara. The venue is right across the street from the beach, and, after the completion of the meet, we all went down to the beach to play and have dinner. The students very quickly divided into two groups - those that dove right into the water and those that stood on the shore, watching. I'm calling these two photos "surf and turf" and linking up with Helena's photo pairs meme this week.
Of course there were some runners who wanted to help some of the reluctant ones into the water:
And why not? People were enjoying body surfing and cooling off.
 Although some remained unconvinced!

Santa Barbara really charmed us when we got to visit a couple of years ago. They seemed to have perfect weather and it is so pretty there.
Happy April

The water looks inviting but I'd have been one of the watchers ... I prefer to stay dry!!

What a great pairing, I think I would have been one of the "turf" ones.
