This week we begin the glorious season of summer, and believe me when I say our kids are more than ready for it to be here! They just had their last day of school on Friday and it is a well deserved treat to be able to spend some time at the BEACH!
Last year my dear friend Donna purchased a darling beach house bungalow at the Jersey shore and was gracious enough to allow us some time down here to relax and enjoy the wonderful ocean air.
An evening walk on the beach was exactly what our family needed after all of the activities surrounding the end of the school year. Now I ask you what is more soothing than roaming the beach looking for some interesting shells and watching the family dog dip his toes in the mighty ocean?
Our Gracie found this interesting collection of teeny tiny shells in the surf which was connected to a piece of what looked like reed. Whatever was inside these little shells was still alive.
Michael found some seaweed that had little pockets filled with air that he could be popped. Kind of like God's version of bubble wrap.
The calm of the shore...
...and boats waiting to be reunited with the sea.
Wishing you all a very happy first day of Summer!!!
