Oceanside Expedition

Jake, Laura, and I headed for the beach yesterday for a little expedition.

We've been getting plenty of "Medicine in the Sky" (maybe too much) and the kids are definitely enjoying being so close to the Atlantic Ocean. The routine has been

  1. Breakfast
  2. Cartoons
  3. Snack
  4. Beach
  5. Pool
  6. Lunch
  7. Repeat above as necessary

Sometimes we head out looking for shells, Man O War, or other treats that may have washed up on the shore. We've seen coconuts, construction debris, a sea turtle (long ago,) crabs, snakes, and many other things that really appeal to young explorers and adventurers.

We talk about the long distance between us and the next landfall.

We discuss the possibility of baitfish, pushed shoreward by heavy winds out of the East, bringing behind them schools of fish or even sharks.

Thanks for reading,
