Family Get-Away: Part II

The Beach!

The ocean is one of those things that I never experienced much of in my childhood except in books and movies. We had plenty of lakes and streams near us, but no salt water. So being near the ocean is a thrill for me. I LOVE going to the beach and feeling the rush of the waves sweeping the sand out from beneath my feet. The taste of salt spray on my lips, the smell of seaweed (even though is stinks sometimes), and discovering treasures that the tide has uncovered. Such a lovely and wonderful place!

Even though it wasn't exactly warm, we had lots of fun anyway.




Mariah really loved it and was so brave. She scared me sometimes with her fearlessness! It was good that "daddy" was there to save her from the big waves!

"Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.
Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure."
Proverbs 4:25-26

Love the video, also all the pictures! Wee Mariah just looks like she is loving the ocean too. Doesn't the ocean just have that special "feeling" about it. I love it too.
