The Beach (Part I)

We are taking a beach vacation this week. What is it about the ocean? The pounding of the waves, the chirping of sea birds, the smell of ocean air, the vibrant colors of sunrise and sunset that beckons one to it.

A yearly trip to our little piece of paradise is a must for us. In fact, we could easily move here permanently. I don't think we could ever tire of the beauty and mystic it holds.

The children have watched dolphins swim twenty feet from us. Last night, they  witnessed loggerhead sea turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean. We have observed lizards, ghost crabs, jellyfish, frogs, hermit crabs, snails, blue crabs,  and horseshoe crabs.  We can't wait to see and do more!
