We are most fortunate to be able to visit the coast. In just a couple of short hours, we can feel the wind whip through our hair, get sand between our toes and collect the most interesting pocket treasures. We certainly don't take it for granted.
Everytime I find myself at the beach, I see something different and new. You wouldn't think that since I've spent a good amount of time absorbing the Washington coast. This time we saw a type of seagull that I have never seen before...grey and smaller than our standard Western gulls.
The sand was still warm from our recent heat wave, but the water was not! Pleasant enough for the boys to get their feet wet and for me to slip off my Sketchers. And even though the sun was taking a hiatus, we thoroughly enjoyed our time walking along the waterline, picking up rocks that resembled watermelon seeds, snapping pics like we knew what we were doing and watching the boys make the flocks of birds settled on the sand take flight.
It was a good day.
