Our family footprints

Mermaid (kind of) Soran

Livi and her stick

Alyssa on the verge of hypothermia

Amber's trying not to get too submersed

I wanted to drive straight to the beach, but the kids wanted to go to the hotel and go swimming in the pool. Go figure. But they had never been to the ocean before so they didn't know what they were missing. When we got there the next day they loved it! We played for about 4 hours and they could have stayed longer. The water was freezing (not that Alyssa cared--she was wave surfing) but the sun was perfect. We laid out and soaked it up. I could have stayed there forever.
There were a lot of seagulls and Soran kept throwing chips at them so they would come close and then Livi would run through the middle of them swinging her stick and scattering them. Probably a good thing, though. There were so many I think they could have carried Soran away. Christian and Amber spent a lot of time finding shells and making an oyster tower. And Scott and I just laid around and thought how perfect it was for February and who could we call and brag to.
