I wish I could say our trip was all sunshine , but it wasn't, tropical storm Beryl came pouring down on us... off and on. Did we we complain? No, we just waited for breaks in the weather and took those spots for granted. When it was raining we just took some much needed rest.
Our first day, after driving the 6 hours, we unpacked and then headed to the beach to watch the children play , and explore.
It was so beautiful.
We were also surprised to find a few live ones, and see some burrowing down into the sand.
In this picture it seems she may have actually noticed it , but she was in her own little world of exploration. She was talking non stop to her daddy about finding Sand dollars, and moving from side to side in the process. She seriously did not see this little dog trying to get her attention.
Let's see, what else did the children find? Oh, yes....Hannah found a baby ray.
Kelaiah found a baby shrimp, but she let it go before the picture was taken. So, I don't have that one.
We also found the shell of a horseshoe crab. :c(
And ,of course, my children's favorite little crabs to chase around the beach, rocks, drift wood, etc.
After our exploring, the children and I headed to the pool.
The next day was a bit windy and the water was definitely not safe, so the children decided to hunt for crabs amongst the rocks.
Kelaiah managed to catch one, but the others got away.
So, guess where we went...The Pool!
The children met some friends and had a lot of fun.
We did get another break from the rain, but planned on going out for dinner. So instead of swimming to get rid of energy, the children climbed a tree that they had been eyeing since we got there. (Their daddy wasn't back from the trade show yet.)
The next day we drove to St. Simons Island. Hubby wasn't feeling well, so we didn't stay long.
