Yesterday our guys experienced their first taste (literally & figuratively) of the ocean! Henry has been insistently talking about “seaside” (prominently featured in a Thomas story), so it was great to experience the real thing. We visited Natural Bridges State Beach with young pals Cyrus & Hazel, their parents Michael & Juliana, and their visiting friends Konrad, Lisa, and young Max. The boys had a ball wading (with assistance) into the onrushing surf, and though their jaws were chattering (“I’m a helicopter! AhBaBaBaBa…” shivered Finn), we had to drag them out for periodic drying/warming sessions.
Here’s our little gallery, kicking off with Henry’s “Young Man and the Sea” routine.
