California dreamin’ on such a winters day

Area kids took advantage of the “beach” and went “fishing” during the Eastman Nature Center’s Winter Beach Party. Party-goers made jellyfish from paper plates and streamers, went digging for shells, played beach games and dress up and raced minnows during the Jan. 24 and 25 events. Kids also got their faces painted and had a chance to pet snakes and turtles. Abby Rose, 16 months, plays in the sand at the Eastman Nature Center in Dayton. (Sun staff photo by Megan Hopps)
