The better beach

Now that I've shared all the cruddy stuff that happened to us at the beach, I can show you the redeeming parts of our trip.

Even with  mean people and a trip to the ER, we came home feeling that it was a fun trip.

Here are a bunch of pictures from our trip:

One good thing about being at this particular beach
during January is getting to see the sunset on the ocean.

Biscuit and I spent our New Year's morning building our sandcastle
empire. This is the one that was stomped by the mean lady.

Biscuit met many new friends that morning, two-legged and four-legged.

We watched the dolphins play all morning. I'm not sure if they were feeding or
what, but some of them jumped high enough that we could see half their bodies.

I told Jeff that this picture looked like we were riding camels
through the desert and crested a hill to see a fortress.

Biscuit picked these sunglasses out from all the others.

Can you see his lips? He's making car sounds
as his trucks drives around the castle.

I love to watch Biscuit's hands at work.

I think there's a law that if there are things to throw, boys will throw them.

Two peas in a pod.

Don't let the waves get you!

I didn't tell Biscuit to stand like this. It's like
he's been reading GQ or something!

What do you see, Biscuit?

Oh! I see Mama!

This is what I got when I said, "Strike a pose."

Biscuit checks out a fresh-water tank at the aquarium.

A crabby crab!

Biscuit at the big tank. We watched a live feeding of all the
critters. The fish get scatter-fed, where they just dump food in
the tank. And the sharks get individually fed fish off a pole. Each
type of shark has its own feeding area. The sharks have
become trained to go to their spot when it's time to eat.

The massive number of shipwrecks off the coast has created
a habitat for fish. The small fish come to live (and hide). The
bigger fish come to eat the smaller fish. And the sharks, the
big predators, come to eat the bigger fish. The circle of life.

The view from our balcony.

Looking to the right.

Looking to the left. That pier used to be about twice as long as it is.
A hurricane took the end off it, and they haven't built it back.

Family time in the sand.

A beachy Christmas tree!
