Our Excellent Adventure - Part 4 - The Beach
Our timeshare in Crystal Beach was just a short drive away from some great beaches. The first one we went to was on an island connected to the mainland by a causeway. It was so foggy that day, that you could barely see boats passing by, but we all managed to get sunburns anyway. We found some awesome shells and made friends with a passing pelican. There were signs everywhere to watch out for riptides, and the water was still quite cold, so we just took off our shoes and waded along the shore.
A few days later Mom and Dad took the boys and I to another great beach just north of where we were staying. Here we used makeshift shovels and buckets (margarine containers and a cut-off milk jug) to build a sandcastle.
