And the best, what you don't read about, what no one tells you! We went exploring to the shore near our place. IT WAS THE MOST SPECTACULAR TIDEPOOL EVER!!!!
First, though, I hung back with Dad. See, I don't like him out of my sight. In fact, I like to hold his hand constantly, sleep with him, be AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE. So, when Mom and Hayes had a random dog following them on the beach, I stayed back with my Dad and Y.
Hayes was the first to spot the sea urchins. We had no idea what was yet in store...
Mom doesn't bore us with scenery pics often but thought you'd like to see this amazing place.
And the investigation begins.
How cool is this sea star? Oh, and how cute am I?
And the anemones! Now, I'm not one to just touch stuff, but luckily for me my brother is. So, he just knelt down and touched the anemones!!!!!!!! Can you believe it? And the shrunk back. It was so cool. So, after Hayes taught me (yes, every so often he teaches me something) that I shouldn't be a fraid of a gooey green thing living in the sea, I touched it!!! Can you believe it? And it was SO amazing!
Look closely and you'll see dad with living sea urchins. I'm telling you, this day was fabulous!
And when we got to the tip of the beach, you could see where there used to be a lighthouse. No longer, but we still got to climb around and explore.
