Beach on Tybee Island in georgia.
We spent Monday morning at the beach. Again it was not the warmest day, but warm enough to play on the beach, no swimming though.
The ocean waves always amaze me. The first thing someone always does it run out to the waves and play tag with the waves. This activity can take many hours and on warm days leads to wave jumping.
They spent a lot of time making this castle. Dennis was trying to reach the waves, unbeknowest to us, the tide was going out, so it was a feat not accomplished!!
Julia spent many hours maticulously placing shells on the four corners or each tower. Remember* there are a lot of towers since Dennis was trying to catch the tide going out!*
Sawyer loves to stick his feet in the sand, wiggle back and forth in an attempt to bury his feet. It is soooo CUTE!!
A trip to the beach would not be worth it for Ryan, if some form of animal life was not found. He found this crab, played with it for awhile and then he and Sawyer spent a long time watching it bury itself into the sand.
Another treasure found by Ryan! Earlier in the day, Ryan had informed me that sanddollars were actually purple. I didn't really think about it, until later when he brought me one to show me. I had never seen that before and was thoroughly amazed!
The kids love the beach, we went for a walk to the lighthouse and when we came back to the beach, they laid on the sand and started making "snow angels", as Sawyer referred to them.
A picture of the Tybee lighthouse, we made a brief visit,without our shoes, and then realized you had to have shoes to enter the buildings, so we went back to the beach and when we were done being on the beach we came back, with our shoes this time.
Julia always asks before we go to the beach if there are going to be sharks! We always inform her that there will be no sharks. While she was building her castle she informed us all that she saw a shark. Thankkfully it was a dolphin, but still great that Julia saw it first. We saw two groups of dolphins twice during our beach time. Very cool!! it was hard to get pictures though!
And you truly know if you vacation well when you take a detour in the opposite direction, just so you can touch a certain state. We traveled over the bridge into South Carolina, so chalk it up as a state we have been to as a family!
