Beach Day

The day after we went rafting we went out to the coast and Travis took the little kayak to see how difficult the little one might be in the ocean. While he set up, I took the boys over to the tide pools.
Emmett found a critter right away.

So slimy and awesome!

It looks like a little eel.

I convinced Emmett to put it back in the water.

And it swam around his foot

Then he wanted to pick it up again...

One of the fun things about Cape Kiwanda is the dory fleet that launches from there. When the come in they come screaming at the beach and slide up the sand.

When we got back we watched Travis try out the little kayak.

Making it out

Although it looks very precarious.

The boys found some pools warmed by the sun to play in.

Moving back up the beach after the surf had carried him down a ways.

Riding the wave

The nose always slid into the water and sprayed Travis in the face

That doesn't look all that enjoyable to me, but he was making it in straight.

And then he started to turn...

And this animation shows what happens when you turn sideways to the wave

But still he goes out again and again

Well, at least he had lots of fun!

Sand in your mouth Carson?
