Five days. Seventy photos. And I thought I'd filtered them down to a reasonable amount. Looking back at these a couple of months later, I can almost feel the sunshine beaming down on me, the smell of that ocean air, the sticky salty feeling that clings to you after a day spend near the ocean. The beach is so so good for my soul. This is my happy place. Thankful that we had a chance to spend some time there together as a family before summer ended. I think you can see the happiness on all our faces; Clara is surely a beach girl too. Eloise will soon learn too, I suspect. Boardwalk, beach, aquarium and more.... these are precious times.
Without further ado, here's some warm memories of one of my very favorite places with my most favorite people. Goodness.
