Our Day at the Beach + Superhereos
Today we went to Colonial Beach. It's about a twenty minute drive from home. Max and Morgan loved every minute of it. CB is still the Potomac River but where we live the river is just a huge saltwater inlet really.
We packed a picnic for today too. Max kept getting sand on his sandwich. The water was just too distracting and not a lot got eaten.
The beach has a series of piers for fishing and man made break waters for swimming. The water was the perfect depth, temperature, everything. The only thing I didn't like was that Mo kept swimming under water and when he came up he had a dirty face. It's because it's still a river after all and the break waters tend to trap silt.
The boys made a couple of friends today. The people next to us had a little boy and girl who were bored with eachother. The kids played in the sand with them and swam. Morgan befriended a Navy Vet who taught him how to skip stones.
We hunted for shells but had more luck finding naturally tumbled stones and sea glass.
