04-16-18 The day the beach was gone…

I picked up the kids this evening and they asked to go to the beach. I hesitated at first, because it had rained today and the temps had dropped, but in the end I agreed to take them. We got there, parked, and made the walk down the road to the beach only to find upon arriving at the beach that it was nearly gone!! A combination of the recents days’ rain and high tide resulted in just a sliver of sand to call beach. We walked on the small part of the beach we could navigate and made our way to the boardwalk and got some exercise there. In all the years I’ve gone there, I’ve never seen the water so high. What had been a stream going under the bridge and weaving though the sand just last week was now unrecognizable.

This photo is literally seconds before Baby E tripped and fell down, his face missing a large pile of dog poo by literally an inch!!

After the nice walk, we headed for the van. I took the chance to have an impromptu photo shoot with the kids and I love how the pics turned out!

Tomorrow morning I have an eye doctor’s appointment, which is fortuitous because this evening I poked myself in the eye with the corner of a sheet of paper. Ouch!! Also, I found our first tick of the season on Baby E this evening. I’m more than ready for warm weather, but I could definitely do without those pests. Ugh!
