As I wrote the last post, I had this deep desire to revisit our days at the beach. It was such a peaceful time. Despite the whole bathroom situation. :) So here are some more pictures of our time at the beach. Can't you just smell the ocean?
Jonathan spent a lot of time searching for shells. Especially the elusive, unoccupied whelk. I believe this was one of his first...
And Jonathan found more.
On the day that we headed down to Sunset Beach, we came home by way of the Cape May Lighthouse park. This is part of what is left of some military bunkers and so on. Initially the Seth, Mackenzie, Jarryd, Mikayla, Jonathan and Matthew were not expecting the spray.
But for this picture they knew it was coming and the girls knew it wouldn't get them wet.
Matthew really loved this beach.
Matthew, Uncle Scott and Jonathan explored the old military bunkers.
And the boys tried to dig trenches but the ocean kept ruining all of their hard work.
We spent some time in Cape May strolling the shops. Laura, Jonathan and Uncle Scott found a fountain.
And after we were done, Laura and Kenz found a place to rest back at Scott and Brenda's rental.
I had to include this photo. It is of Scott and Brenda's mirror as we crossed the access bridge over the sound approaching Stone Harbor. In it you can see our van, complete with clam shell on the top, and you can also see Brenda taking the photo. Cracked us up!
Back in Stone Harbor, the boys found one of the few Horseshoe crabs we found this year. They are big suckers. And I mean big! Very slow moving. Very scarce.
And finally, the boys after conquering another day at the beach. The sun is setting and we must all head back. Oh how I wish I were on that beach again. Just for a few more days!!!
At least we have next year.
