I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted.
We've been soaking up as much Summer as we can.
Lots of Gardening.
And, honestly, I've been a bit worn out from all the referring I've been doing. The girls adore each other, but they squabble A LOT. Nye-Nye starts Pre-school soon, so it will be interesting to see how that changes the dynamics between the girls.
No large Vacation for this Summer, instead we've had several Little Adventures.
North Beach was one of them.
Neither Papa Bear and I had ever been to North Beach before, which is surprising since we both grew up in the area.
In fact, I had never heard of it before I read an article in the Washington Post that mentioned the town.
North Beach is a tiny, very low-key Beach Town complete with a Boardwalk. There are no serious waves, which is just right for our kids at this age. There is a lovely pier, perfect for fishing. There are nets that keep out jelly-fish and large fish. And, there is the cutest two-story ship play-ground right on the water's edge.
The best part?
North Beach is only 40 miles from our house.
We left house at Anala Bear's Naptime and arrived in time for Lunch. We played for a few hours,washed off, ate some funnel-cake and drove home at 4 pm.
Everyone had a blast.
We can't wait to go back.
Supposedly there is a terrific Farmer's Market/Art Fair/Classic Car Show every Friday. We are going to try and hit that up one Friday in September, while the weather is still warm.
It was definitely worth the money. Beach fees for Out-of-County Residents are $15 ages 12-54 and $8 for ages 3-11. The Beach was super clean, the facilities were decent and we didn't have to deal with being stung by jelly-fish. We are thinking about getting a Season Pass for next year.
