the last of the beach

The last few days of our beach trip we've been busy packing in every last bit of fun we possibly can. We've been busy

searching for the perfect shell,

watching the coquina clams burrow back into the sand,

jumping over waves,

practicing silly splash moves,

feeling the sea spray on our faces,

smiling through the sand,

collecting these little balls of sea jelly called Salp (Does anyone know what these are? They look similar to jellyfish but are all similarly sized and shaped and we found them everywhere at high tide today.)

digging holes,

playing in holes,

observing a thunderstorm roll over the ocean,

visiting the Graveyard of the Atlantic museum,

playing a round of putt-putt,

giggling at Finn's first putting experience,

scoring a hole-in-one in a lovely lush green setting,

climbing to the top of the lighthouse,

exploring some marshes,

marveling at the windsurfers,

basking in the warm glow of the ocean sunset.

goodbye beach! until next time...


  1. What a perfect ending. Those silly wave moves are hilarious! Hmmm, I wonder what those jelly balls are. Very cool!

    Have a safe trip home,

  2. Ian't crazy to watch those clams dig down? That never ceases to amaze me.
    The jelly blobs could be baby comb jellies? That's my shot in the dark.
    Have a safe trip home!

  3. How wonderful that you had such a great family beach trip. I have enjoyed all of your photos, my favorite one today was the last shot of the silhouettes.

  4. Joy it is clear in your photos that your time at the beach was inspiring! It looks like a beautiful time together with your family! Gorgeous photos, I can imagine this trip will stay with you for a very very long time!

  5. What an awesome trip to the beach!!!

  6. It looks like you had so much fun. What a gorgeous place. I love the beach!

  7. Lovely! I think we might take a day trip to the beach this upcoming week.

  8. Oh this reminds me so much of "beach week" that my parents have every year in NC. They rent a house right on the beach and whoever can come, comes. It started when we all still lived at home, and now it has grown and with spouses and kids it seems we have to get a larger house every year. I treasure this time of beaching, mini-golfing, ice-cream making, long walks & talks with mom. Its the best!!

    and it certainly looks like you found the perfect shell!


I love to hear what you think!
