Our second day of vacation (first full beach day,) Sunday, was extremely low-key. After church (an experience I won't go into) we hung out til lunch (doing a hot air balloon puzzle that was missing six pieces) and then took a walk down to the beach.
They had a bowl of shells and you leave a note or a picture or the date. (the one pictured is not ours.) It was one of those things that makes it feel so perfect. You get to leave a tiny piece of yourself there, for the next person to enjoy. to remember you by. and you get a different piece of the adventure of the ocean, a different perspective, a new idea.
We didn't walk on the pier, but we walked down to it (it was about a quarter mile) and the first day the tide had brought in just buckets of shells and I found two pieces of green sea glass. and guys, there is nothing like sea glass.
