|Gran Jan took lots of pictures. I was proud of her.|
|Brock was a shark Clark & Garrison rescued the girls from. They underestimated how hard it would be to put him on the float.|
|Gran Jan on her throne.|
|See? Lots of laughs.|
|Turning the pool into the ocean.|
|Catching some rays.|
|Summer love affair right here...I'd eat it every day if I could.|
|I had three. No judging. Pea ess: ever eat a leftover smore cold?! DO IT. Tasty.|
Onto the beach. AKA SA's happy place.
|About to cross over the bridge to the island.|
...and raced down to the shore. Even though I was beyond excited to go to my special place, my second home, I just watched as the boys & their cute little shadow Quinn leapt into the ocean with no fear. Here lately, I like watching people enjoy things more than I like doing them myself. I'm getting old, I know.
The ocean was ROUGH...we couldn't go in past our calves, but that didn't matter much since the waves were crashing so close to shore and we could float in on the swells. Bliss.
Quick break for lunch!
|When did he grow up?!|
|Hauling the food up to the shelter.|
|I only ate half a box.|
We ate in shifts, and at one point it was all the kids on the beach, waiting for our food to settle before we got back in the water. We had a blast people watching.
About mid-afternoon we left with lots of memories and sand in hidden places.
|Brother & sister.|
|The girl cousins...we gotta stick together!|
|Waterlogged and tired but oh so happy.|
|Goodbye beach. Until next time.|
|My usual dip cone. I ate it ALL.|
