I'm back....

After our rocky departure day, we had an absolutely gorgeous time at the beach.

The weather largely cooperated; although there were one or two days when it was cloudy or we had a thunderstorm, our first day (which was devoted to travel anyway) was the only rainy day -- we were able to get to the beach and in the water every other day, which is pretty amazing.

We did the traditional flying-of-the-kite

and sand-castle-building

and bodysurfing in the waves, and we ate ice cream

and even the crabbier members of the family (they know who they are) were laughing and having fun.

We even played a round or two of mini-golf, although it was dreadfully hot that day.

We met a cute little toad

and had some delicious seafood.

You'll be pleased to know that the Beach Bun had a great time, too. Look how relaxed he is.

With fall right around the corner (!), there's lots going on in the knitting world, so I'll try to catch up soon. I've got fall yarn previews and book reviews and all kinds of good stuff coming up....

I am so $%^&*&^% JEALOUS of your trip. I just keep telling myself that this will be me in about 3 more weeks. We are heading east and staying at my sister's place while SHE is out west in Calgary! She lives about 10 minutes from a lovely beach (Rainbow Haven) plus NS has lots more too. And friends and family.
So sweet you took the bun bun too!
