Down the shore
Last weekend, With-a-Why and I traveled to the shore with Red-haired Sister's family and their three dogs. Saturday morning, Beautiful Smart Wonderful Daughter and Urban Sophisticate Sister came together by bus from Big City Like No Other to join us for a couple days at the beach. "I like these gatherings of random family members," Urban Sophisticate announced as the nine of us sat down to a feast prepared by Red-Haired Sister and Tie-dye Brother-in-law.
The beach we went to on Saturday is part of a big state park. The two swimming beaches were filled with colorful umbrellas and kids in bright bathing suits, but when we took a walk to collect seashells, we found stretches of empty beach and sand dunes. We all had fun body surfing and jumping in the ocean waves.
