The Beach Was Glorious

We went to Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine. The beach was beautiful, with soft white sand. The wind was blowing really hard but somehow not enough to make it unpleasant. We raced Cool Whip tubs across the sand, letting the wind whiz them across the surface of the beach. We lost one, as the wind was going faster than we could run. The kids were pretty upset but we distracted them with sea shells and racing the waves. The sign said 'High Danger of Rip Currents' and 'Dangerous Sea Life Warning,' so we didn't venture in in earnest. We weren't about to become shark bait, so we only dipped our toes in. James loved racing the waves as they came in. Katie, on the other hand, fell while she was running and got pretty wet, and she got pretty scared. After that, she away from the water. Tyler contented himself with eating mouthfuls of sand every time I looked away for a second. It was Katie and Tyler's first time at the beach so it was fun to see them experience that.

Sigh! That is something I think I could get really used to...sand, sun and water.
