Back from the Beach

The bay side of the Cape was breezy and beautiful, the weather perfect, the sea life abundant.

Steve caught a squid. The girls named him Squirty. He was not happy about being captured (repeatedly, since he escaped often) but he was really cool to look at, and he kept spitting water at Steve.

There were also crabs, horseshoe crabs, and hermit crabs, most of them small, a few of them big. We caught as many as possible and Steve only got pinched once.

The girls had a wonderful time, and really only got sunburned right before we had to come home.

Matilda was magical on the beach, confident and at home. The weekend was just what we all needed, the only problem was that it just wasn't quite long enough.

Except I did miss the internet.

More pictures are at my flickr stream. (You have to be a friend to see most of them, email me if you're not already my flickr friend and we'll hook you up.)

looks and sounds wonderfully amazing... I want some ocean time so badly that I feel like I could just die! (and there goes my girly drama of the day!)

Well now, I just want to go to the beach. The girls look beautiful as always.

Oh, how I miss the Cape. I am at least 2 hours from the beach here and I hate it. Sigh.

Aw, I love the photos! And Squirty is very cool....

The squid is really neat; never seen one myself. I'm glad you and your fam had a great time!
