To all those that have served: Thanks for this day!
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I hope you had a chance to relax or have some fun or do what ever you like to do on your free days off from work.
We decided to take the kids out to the beach for the first time this season. I don’t think they had been to the beach since about June of last year.
I really hadn’t been out to the beach in almost a year as well, except for a glorious time or two when I only could spare minute.
Our visit was ideal and instantly reminded me of vacations and beach visits from the past…
It really was a wonderful day. Even Mom remarked on how perfect everything was; the water was crystal clear, the air temp, the wind, the crowds. It made for a nice escape.
Like I said, even given it was a holiday, a 4-day weekend, the beaches were not too crowded.
Of course we did leave our house at 10:15 to avoid the beach swarm to the coast.
But we had our usual good time. The girls were a little slow to embrace the beach, forgetting where they left off at last summer. They quickly found themselves at home in the tidal pool. They made a few friends there. Poor Skylar, she had to lug around her inner tube swimmie all through out the 8 inch deep tidal pool; kinda like her purse. It was too funny!
We arrived as the tide was going out. The vacated sand made for a nice wide, flat beach. There weren’t many waves due to the low tide so you could just wade out and keep going. Eventually I lured Dylan out to go for a swim with her ol’ dad. As you can see, she really didn’t care for that too much…
The girls had a good time playing in the water and ocean again.
I had a great time acting like a kid in the ocean again. It was fun. It was relaxing. A great time for some little pondering with the Big guy. It was a nice escape. And it felt good to be in my old beach chair again.
Here is a brief look at our day on the ‘Isle Of Palms‘. Thanks for taking time out of your hectic Memorial Day to drop by my beach here in 3D.
To all those Veterans, who helped secure our country and way of living so that we could enjoy a purrfect 3 day weekend (and get paid for it) I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
Happy Memorial Day everyone!
