Minuteman Beach

This is probably one of our favorite beaches. On this particular trip the kids hit the "sand dollar gold mine" and brought about 30 sand dollars home they then proceeded to paint them the next day with acrylic paint. Mighty pretty they are! We also found some fiesty crabs and had a "crab race" back to the ocean. The best part about this beach is that it is owned by the government and not available to the general public and you can see how crazy my family is because they are all in swimming suits on this blustery day and the smart one of the family is nice and warm in a sweatshirt. :)

Jalama Beach

So we just discovered this great little get away not far from our house. Jalama Beach is a county park and has camping areas, showers (a must for Amy) and is a fantastic boogie boarding beach! We will definitely be returning...
