I promised pictures and pictures you shall have.
Here’s a little sand crab. As I was walking along the beach I kept thinking that I saw a bit of trash blowing around. But it was just this little guy. They’re really fast.
The morning after we got there, the sea and sky looked like this….
And one little munchkin was very cold. A tiny little munchkin she is.
The kids? Yes, the kids were there Sunday afternoon through the rest of the trip. Why? Well, because we couldn’t really bear the thought of visiting the beach without the kids. I mean, kids are the reason that the beach is so fun. Mostly because then you get to act like a kid. I don’t think we’d do it again because we really need time alone. But since Travis was sick for the whole trip it gave me somebody to talk to.
Our last day there was still cold and rainy so we decided to head over to Seaside. I wore jeans. And by the time we got there it was sunny and in the 80’s and I was hot. See?
We made it in time to see the sunset.
The water was clear and perfect and smooth as glass. The seaweed that was there the day before had settled back down and we saw a lone dolphin swimming. It made us want to stay longer but we couldn’t. Another bit of symbolism, I think.
And that was our trip. I don’t know if I’ve ever been on a trip quite like it or if I could adequately describe everything that God showed me while we were there. It was exactly what we needed even if it wasn’t perfect.
