One of the most fun excursions of our trip to Florida was a small jaunt over to the beach after dinner to catch the sunset. We were only at the beach for 20 minutes or so, but it was beautiful.
One surprising thing we learned about Alex is, if he’s close to the ocean, then he will run in. So as soon as we got to the beach, off went his sandals and away he ran. We couldn’t keep him out, no matter how many times Becky went in to rescue him. (What was Dad doing while his son repeatedly ran into the cold water? Taking pictures, of course.)
One of the most pleasant things about the trip was how close we were to such striking natural beauty. It’s not every day that you get to head out to watch a spectacular show of sunlight, clouds, and water in that brief time between dinner and toddler bedtime.
