We haven't taken the time to go the beach since we moved to the new house. It probably seems crazy to live so close to the ocean and not go more often. The truth is that I've gotten used to everything (shopping, restaurants, entertainment) being so close that a 40 minute drive to the beach seems like a big hassle. The beach is only about 20 miles of away, but with all the traffic, it can take quite a while to get there. Well, this morning AC and I packed up the car and headed towards the water.
We didn't wear bathing suits. I knew she wouldn't want to get in the water. I was right. Only playing on the sand for us. She had fun but we didn't stay long. Taking a toddler to the beach is definitely a two-person job. After 20 minutes I was worn out. And besides, it was swarming with spring-breakers.
If any of you is in the need for a little sand and sun, come on down! We'll go to the beach everyday, if that's what you want!! AC would love it!
