It’s been a week since I last dug my toes into the sandy beach and watched my kids play in the waves. I love the beach!
I love hearing the waves wash up on the shore. I love sitting under my beach umbrella reading a book. I love walking on the beach, looking for treasures among the rocks. This year we found some sea glass and a really big dead fish. I didn’t love that so much.
I love watching my kids have best time ever playing on the beach, building sand castles, pretending they are mermaids, and jumping in the waves.
One day the water will be as smooth as glass and you can see schools of silvery minnows darting this way and that. The next day the water can be choppy and rough, boogie board ready. I spent so much time among the waves that my fingers turned into prunes. The water was gorgeous and warm, something that you can’t take for granted in the Great Lakes.
There are things I don’t like about the beach, however. I don’t like getting too much sun, even when we tried to be careful and reapplied the sunscreen. It’s not fun taking off your swimsuit in the bathroom and having clumps of sand falling to the floor. It’s been a week since we left, and I’m still finding sand in Lily’s hair.
The worst part about the beach? Leaving.
