After the storm passed, the sun came out and the light was absolutely fantastic. We ended up staying until 8:30 or so and when we got home, my sister-in-law had the picture to the left and this as her status on Facebook, "It's a good day at the beach when you are sitting by moonlight." Since we left before the moon came out, I had to add, "Hey this is the first time ever that I felt like I was leaving the beach early at 8:30 at night." All in all, a really wonderful day at the beach. It may not have been at my favorite beach but it was one of my favorite days at the beach!!
It was also my niece's 12th birthday and I think that as ways of celebrating your birthday go, finishing the day sitting on the beach by moonlight would rank right at the top. Happy birthday to a to a terrific kid, we love you lots!!
Quick funny story, we are going back to the beach today so my youngest is getting ready by packing up. I have one of those cups with the straws that are so popular today and my daughter asked to use it. My other daughter asked her what she was talking about and she said, "You know, the sippy cup." Ha!
Enjoy some of my favorite pictures from the day:
