For the last few years we’ve marked the end of the summer with a weekday trip to the beach. I take the day off and we head out early to be at the beach before the crowds. For some reason it’s always a very special day for us and this week was no different. We were the only people on the beach when we got there. It was low tide and going out and Grace and Whit danced in the shallows (as you can see I caught Grace mid-twirl) for a long time before swimming out further. We walked on the exposed sand bars, dug in the wet sand, and played the alphabet game during our picnic lunch. It was magic. And now: onward to fall.
