The... Beach?

Last Sunday we went to the beach. Except, it didn't look much like a beach.

Beautiful in a way, just not the sort of look that inspires you to lay out your mat and work on your tan. Not the sort of look that makes you want to splash in the waves.

It was good for catching puffer fish, which is what the locals were doing. Anna immediately made friends and joined in the fun. (The next day Ethan read a book to me which said that puffer fish are poisonous!)

Anna likes to cover herself in sand at the beach.

Ethan does not.

We took the dogs to the beach for the first time ever. Actually, our dog trainer invited us to accompany him and his wife and 1 dog. It was one part training exercise and one part socializing with new friends.

Jade is at the end of the leash in the next picture. She actually swam in the ocean!

We actually know that the beach doesn't always look like this. Or, it DIDN'T always look like this. We were there last year and it was not covered in seaweed. Hopefully it was just some seasonal thing and will be cleared up in the summer. However, I do think the seaweed covered rocks make pretty pictures.

They look as though they were having fun! I've heard that puffer fish can be poisonous too.
