Beach house in Aptos- 4/7/10

Chi Tan and Anh Hung invited us to their beach house is Aptos many times but for some reason we could not synch up.  This time we were able to make it and we were glad to finally be able to check out their beach house.   Aptos is about an hour away from our house and is located in Santa Cruz County.  Aptos is a very small but very nice community.  

This is the front of their house.

Doan, Hoa, and I we took a walk down the beach.  Too bad, today the weather was cold but it was a very nice walk on the beach.

This house is really great for entertaining and the view of the ocean can also be seen while cooking, which is pretty relaxing.

Bac Don went to the Pier and bought 10 live crabs and then cooked them at home.

Doan sent the kids to Seascape, a luxury beach resort for dinner.  Let me tell you the kids were really happy to be on their own so they can talk and enjoy the view from Seascape.

After dinner is a friendly game of Texas hold'm.
