Wednesday Nina and I took the girls to the beach! It looked cold and gloomy when we started out on our journey, but it ended up being the perfect day to have a beach day, becuase we did not have to worry about getting burned so easily. With gloomy weather you would think there would be less people at the beach. This is simply not so. Corona del Mar seemed to be covered with beach umbrellas and children so we decided to hike over the rocks (with the "babes" as i like to call them) and made our way over to Pirates Cove..assuming no one would think to actually enjoy the beach over there. As soon as we get over the rocks Nina starts laughing becuase Pirates Cove is filled with at least 50 summer camp kids. So much for getting away from the crowds. BUT they had the kids literally coned off into a small area of the sand so we had plenty of space. Nevaeh and I spent most of our time in the water and had a blast. A few times Nina brought Char to the water, but it turned out each time only to try and wash all the sand off her hands so she would quit consuming the entire beach front! Needless to say, we had a blast and no overpowering waves that engulfed Nevaeh. Unlike last years adventure to the beach... hehe. that was my fault.
