Last week we went with dad to show him Kettle Cove, I had to work that afternoon so we got there early and spent a few lovely hours playing in the sand, tossing rocks into the ocean and collecting sea shells and sea glass. The kids had a great time on the grassy area and rocks making videos so that it looked like they were falling into the ocean. There were moments of meditaion (Sagan calling out... "Mom, tell me when 4 minutes is up, I am going to meditate!"), lots of eating, and looking at tide pools in the rocks full of snails and some other weird sea creatures.
All and all a lovely way to spend the late morning before heading off to work in the afternoon.
