The kids were fascinated by the horseshoe crab carcases (click the link to find out why) that littered the bea .. I mean shore. We also found the coolest conch shell seed cases (although online research led me to believe that the real name for them is the knobbled whelk).
Phillip tried out the sea kayak while I sat and watched the kids play and play and play and play while chatting with anyone and everyone that didn't have a book in their hands. We had a wonderful time learning new games and of course gathering around the guitar for some singing. Here is Zak getting a rhythm lesson with the egg shaker.
The next day we decided to take the "long cut" home by taking the ferry from the Delaware shore to the Jersey shore. It was really kind of sad to see the surfers try to catch tiny little intermittent waves. One wave was big enough to knock Eliannah over and log roll her a few times but Zak was there to rescue her and she only ended up with a head full of sand. Even after 2 showers she is still raining sand! (She was fine btw.)
We drove through Atlantic city just to see what the big deal was all about (hated Vegas, I'm pretty sure I would hate Atlantic city) and came home with big smiles and no sunburns! Gotta love the East coast! This morning I had to sweep the falling leaves from the front of the house and it's getting chilly ... real Fall!
