Ellie and I walked over to the beach one morning just after sunrise.
My little urchin brought her boogie board
and braved the ocean's morning chill
while I waited on shore,
and feet. Hers, not mine.
After breakfast, we went to the race track
and bumper cars.
Along the way, the girls spied this beautiful butterfly (or is it a moth?) on the ground. Lifeless, poor thing. Made me think of Velma and her penchant for sharing dead critters on her blog ...so...Velma, this one's for you.
Evening found us back at the beach for a bit of water time.
The tide was turning and not ideal for righteous boogie boarding, but Ellie and Grace didn't let that stop their fun.
Ellie was queen of the hill
while Grace made jellyfish cairns.
Back at the house, I decided it was time to try out the kayak that John made.
