A perfect day "down the shore"

Sunny skies. Foaming surf. Water rushes in. Squeals of joy.

"Hold me, Mommy! Hold my hand! Tighter! Don't let go!

The surf pulls back and feet disappear in the wet sand below. Pebbles rush away and then forward again. Laughter.

Down the shore

The smell of sunscreen and salt. A cool breeze blowing off the vast water. Cold drinks and fresh fruit.

Toes digging in sand. The delight of finding a gleaming white shell, followed by an iridescent blackish-blue one.

Examining their sea shells

Her favorite shell

Buckets and shovels dig holes big and small. Mounds of sand pile up. Castles made and destroyed, then remade again.

Buckets of fun

Rest. Relaxation. Peace.

Dad takes a break

Fun. Dreams. Excitement. A perfect summer day. Memories that last a lifetime.

i love these entry --- short phrases and yet they describe fully that wonderful day at the beach :)... and the pictures are perfect for each word... and my favorite is:
"Sunny skies. Foaming surf. Water rushes in. Squeals of joy.

"Hold me, Mommy! Hold my hand! Tighter! Don't let go!"

... and mommy would surely never let go of this precious memories :)
