Can we still be friends if I do one more post about the beach? I promise to talk about something else really soon. Something that you really like. Like knitting or cookies or books. Like, really promise. But having never been one to write posts simply for the sake of writing something, this blog does tend to reflect what we are actually doing with our days during any given period of time. And what we are doing right now is beach.
Over the weekend, we took the suggestion that some of you gave in the comments on last week's beach post, and headed to the New Hampshire coast. Some friends from Vermont were going to be in the area, giving us a good excuse to make a little more of a trek than we normally might. Of course, we hit ridiculous mystery traffic going up, but it was okay. I feel like it is fine for it to take a long time to get where you are going, as long as you can get home quickly enough when it is time. Because that is when your children are tired and no longer have a sense of adventure.
By the time we arrived, it was nearly high tide, so a lot of the beach was hidden by the sea. This meant that our tide pooling aspirations were squashed a bit, but we did still find various little shells and a good number of crabs and their associated parts. So, still a success in my humble opinion.
I am not, it turns out, difficult to please.
