Last night, at around 6PM, we all decided to take a quick ride to the beach. We live about 15 minutes from the shore and haven’t hit the sand ONCE this summer. We are members of our town pool – so that’s usually where we get wet.
It was beautiful. There was one other family still enjoying the surf. It was quiet. It was peaceful. It was still warm. The kids wore their bathing suits but Bill and I decided we wouldn’t go in the ocean. I really wasn’t ready for a full blown production.
Caleb enjoyed it too. I wouldn’t really let him touch the sand because I was afraid he would get some in his eyes. But he certainly liked the scenery! And I swear – he really UNDERSTANDS what to do when a camera comes out. He immediately starts smiling – it’s so funny!
We stayed for about 2 hours. We just might return tonight. A perfect way to spend the final hours of summer.
