Beach Trip

Back in September I took the girls to the beach for the day. We had pretty much the best imaginable day; here are some pictures.

We started at the Newport aquarium. The girls have been there a lot, but don’t seem to get tired of checking out all the fish. The otter was out and about and playing

Lillie is much more into the touch table than she used to be. Brave enough to touch all the different critters

After the aquarium, we headed down to Devils Churn. It wasn’t churning much, but we had fun playing around on the rocks

And the girls clowned around for me a bit

Next stop was Neptune’s cove. One of the joys of the Oregon coast is having entire empty beaches. This is a gorgeous section of beach with interesting rock formations at the end and beautiful forested hills for a backdrop. The weather was warm and it wasn’t too windy, and it was just a great spot to play.

Lillie wanted to make sure the rocks didn’t fall on her head while I took the picture

We build a fairly epic sand castle. The towers in the middle are mine, then the girls each did their own tower on the end. The picture really doesn’t do it justice, it was quite a construction project

Eventually someone else did wander down the beach and took our picture for us

The sun was so warm that the girls spent at least an hour running in the waves
