A mathematics conference sponsored by NCTM for teachers of high school mathematics afforded me the opportunity to rub shoulders with some great people, learn a lot and enjoy one of God's greatest creations, the ocean! These pics are from Manhattan Beach near LAX in Los Angeles, CA. The conference was awesome, the beach was awesome! I love the feel of the sand in my toes, the sound of the waves, the smell in the air...all of it! I read, ran, ate, walked, waded, and observed as I spent many hours here over the course of 3 days. What a treat!
