The beach house is about a block from the beach. After arriving yesterday, we loaded up and headed out. The water was rough. I read that 3 people actually drowned in the rip tide in the next town over.
It was a little stormy on and off, too. We watched the clouds and rain move across the horizon. It was VERY windy and loud
The Canadian kept accusing me of being overprotective, but I knew the water was powerful, and we respected it and didn't do much more than play in the edge of the surf.
The boys were a little disappointed that they couldn't surf like last year, but I told them we have the whole week and to hope for blue flags!
We played in the sand for a while and walked along the shore before heading back to the house for a swim in the pool.
Thankfully, this house has it's own little pool. It was much calmer and quieter than the loud and windy beach. There is also a little guest house, too.
I wish my Aunt could have come - especially since she rented this house for our family! But since my grandmother is doing so poorly, she just didn't feel like she could leave her.
We ended our first day with a walk along the beach, with some recreational crabbing. The boys LOVED it!
This is the biggest one we found. Everyone had their picture taken with it - ha! He wasn't harmed, though, and we released him to return to his family.
Cheers to the week ahead!
