On the Beach

In celebration of D's birthday, we headed out of the city to enjoy a few days at the beach. We were fortunate to be able to stay at a relative's amazing beach house, and to get some nice weather (not always a given in early June around here).

Away we go!
 
We had so many adventures (more posts to come), but some of our favorite times were the mornings and evenings we spent exploring the beach, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. There wasn't much to break the welcoming quiet except the chattering of sea birds, the occasional airplane, and of course, the sounds of our children playing (and, sometimes, crying). The slow pace of beach life and plenty of time together as a family were quite rejuvenating.

D made me a nice "cup of tea"
 
He loves seaweed too! (Except when he slips on it....)
