We've seen so many things on our trips to the sand this summer, but the kids did not expect to see one of these trotting along the shore, yes, it's a horse!
I think that even topped off observing the washed up elephant seal in July and all the porpoise I could never catch on camera! I enjoyed the breeze and light wind. Even those elements were noticed by the kids and they couldn't help but have small talk on how that was affecting their waves and booggie boarding for the day ; ) After a few tries my boys and I were finally able to take a picture of a flock of bird's amazing V formation (hope you can see them). Bird formation just always gets oohs' and ahs' from my little guys:
And lastly, our summer beach study couldn't be complete if mom didn't do something, I mean make a nature journal entry, of all the seaweed specimens the boys kept bringing me : O After all we've compared at least three different kinds, taken them home and looked at them under a microscope all summer. When I was done I got a "that looks good mom" and they moved on to something else ; )
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend all!
