Back from the Beach

We're back from Hatteras, NC. Again it was so great to spend time for the second year with these generous, kind friends. There were 21 people in a 7 bedroom house. Lots of cooking and sharing meals; watching children in the pool and on the beach; kite flying, boogie boarding, and sand castle building. Nights catching crabs, roasting marshmallows, and one rainy night watching lightening crackle across the whole horizon.

This year's house: Beach Babies

Favorite activities at the beach:

* long walks at the edge of the waves searching for cool shells or sea glass

* finding the perfect spot in the water where the waves gently lift and cool you, but don't send white water over your head

*finally getting to carve the stack of sand you've worked so hard to build

* being on the beach at night with ghost crabs and glow sticks
