The day before yesterday we all went down to the beach below the house. As Zoya, Amy and the kiddos left the house Amy was amazed to learn that we don't actually do down to the beach all that often. I later joined them with the dogs and a good time was had sitting on the sand by the water. The dogs chased sticks, Nora did some wading. Stu wandered around in his diaper. Then it was time to go home. And Amy learned why 'we don't go down to the beach all that often'.
Nora did not want to leave, and had to be carried crying away from the water. The dogs found some rotting fish, and then had to be put on leashes to keep them out of the road. Then Nora wanted to walk back. Needless to say but it took a while to get home. Felt more like a trek than a walk. Still it was very nice by the water. We really should get down there more often.
