Ellie was in hog heaven with the beach. She could have stayed down there all day. We usually went down in the mornings and stayed til nap. And let me tell you, nap she did! What is it about sun and water that makes kids so tuckered?
I was terrified she was going to burn, but besides a small spot on her face I missed the first day, not one single burn. She actually tanned. WTH? I don't tan. I burn and peel. Plus, my skin does not tolerate the sunscreen, salt, sun combo well. I always get splotchy and gross. It is so unfair. So anyhoo, here are some pics of our beach fun.
First step into the sea.
Ellie and Daddy checking out the pool first thing. Seriously, we weren't even unpacked. She just couldn't wait.
Shells! There were tons of shells on the beach. Fun!
Ellie and Daddy discussing what a terrific and wonderful wife and mother I am.
Must be nap time.
It was 50 degrees for 2 days we were there. 2 flippin' days. Didn't stop us though!
Heading back to the house, freezing.
Climbing a sand dune. Did you know there was a $500 dollar fine for playing on the dunes? This stopped as soon as we learned that little tidbit. We are not beach people. We didn't know the rules!
Ellie watching a little beach bocchi.
Looks like nap time again.
A sandy snack.
The beginning of a fantastic sand castle.
I took a few precautions around the pool. She was not pleased. Next on list, swimming lessons.
Every morning there was a huge tide pool that we would play in. This was her favorite.
