Beach Day!

Posted on

This morning we woke to beautiful blue skies, and decided that a day at the beach was in order.  We also knew that the blue skies may not last, so we left first thing.

We worked our way out of the marina and through the jungle and out onto Red Frog Beach.  It’s about a 10 minute walk, and so worth it!

We all immediately went for a swim, but quickly found that the ocean had a temper today.  There was a long shore current as well as a riptide, so everyone stayed shallow and Danny and I kept a close watch on the creatures.

The waves were gorgeous.

Danny and I went for a walk down the beach while the creatures played  in the sand and relaxed.

When we returned, Jude had dug a hole, and Emma had built a snowman/sandman.

As always, I was fascinated by the beautiful flowers on our walk back.

After returning and showering up we were ready for a nap.  The creatures watched Harry Potter and after sleeping for a bit Emma came in and woke me saying that the pineapple boat was here.  Jude and I went to investigate and came back with 3 beautiful pineapples – each for $1.

This evening when I served the tribe dinner, I made them fresh pineapple/mango smoothies to go with their meal.  No one complained 🙂

I am grateful for another beautiful day surrounded by my sweet husband and children.
