Oh, Big Water!

I wanted to look for seashells and beach glass, so we all piled in the car and headed to the beach early in the morning.

The beach mainly had rocks. And stones. And pebbles. And boulders. And crushed shells and seaweed. I found one small piece of beach glass, and a handful of small shells. Not much of a haul.

But Jake hasn't been to the beach much (yeah, I know, we live on the coast in California and we have no excuse), so his reaction was entertaining. After parking the car, we had a long walk along a boardwalk that crossed the marshlands and led up to the beach and over the dunes. Just beyond the dunes, is the beach. Jake said, "Oh, BIG WATER!" And then shivered and clung to my leg, claiming to be scared for about 30 seconds. Then he forgot he was scared and dug in the sand and pushed his Matchbox car through the sand and picked up stones to throw into the ocean.
