|This is what happens when you miss the boat you hoped to be on! Asleep before we left the dock.|
|Gotta love the beach shoes and long shorts!|
After breakfast the first morning, we trekked to the beach with our blanket, beach umbrella, towels, sand toys, lunch, sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, and water bottles, and got ourselves set up in the perfect spot. I lathered Beansprout up and . . . after about 5 minutes of playing in the sand he said, "All Done!" "Home." Can you hear the sigh!?! Try as I might to get him to enjoy the beach, it was ultimately a big FAIL. I had to take him back to the beach house we called home and re-evaluate my own expectations!
|Gelato, need I say more?!?|
|Evening walk at Trail Bay.|
The good news is, our beach holiday still had plenty of fun to offer me and my little guy! We enjoyed exploring new playgrounds, walking the rocky beaches, watching seaplanes take off, eating that ice cream on the pier, and best of all, we learned that he LOVES trail walks :)
I learned that my own childhood memories won't always mirror those of Beansprout, and that I'm perfectly happy with the alternatives.
|ZONKED! Vacationing can be hard work, ya know!|
