A Trip to the Beach....
Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! This is the last weekend of the kid's Spring Break. It rained the whole week.. which is typical for Spreak Break on the OR Coast. Did ya all know I live right on the Coast? Yep.... I'm seriously about 10 minutes from the beach. We don't go near enough.... we take it for granted I'm afraid. Yesterday, the sun popped out, so we decided to hit the beach. One of Averie's favorite things to do is go hunting for shells.
The photo above is part of a ship that shows itself every hundred of years or so... I'm not sure if it's really a 100, but it's the first time I've seen it in my lifetime and I've lived her all my life. Amazing to me that the sand levels can change so much. The ship is pretty cool.. you can see the back all the way to the front sticking out of the sand.
The other fun discovery yesterday was all the jelly fish that washed up. We must have hit the tide just right, because we found about five of them. This was one of the smaller ones, but look how purple it looks inside. Cool huh?
This is one of my twins, Baylor. See all the Sand dollars in his hands? Averie and him have been hunting for whole unbroken ones forever. It's easy to find whole ones, but they are usually broke on one side or the other. Guess who found two totally whole ones yesterday? ME... ME...ME! I think it's the first time... that I found two perfect Sand dollars!
This is Sheldon and Averie.Sheldon is turning 16 next month! Averie is 6.5... yes, the .5 matters. LOL. My little beachcomber. Jayce didn't go with us yesterday, so I don't have a photo of him :(
We really had a fun day. It was a nice end to Spring Break.
One last photo as we were leaving. The ocean looks so calm from a distance, but when you are close, it's rough and loud.... and amazing how fast the waves sneak up.
Oh wait, one more... of my perfect Sand Dollars. Yes... I gave them to the kids... one for Bay and one for A. Now, they each have one perfect one for their collection.
Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
