I miss the beach, you guys. It wasn't necessarily what I was most looking forward to, but I had so much fun exploring dunes, chasing seagulls, and snapping photos. The beaches were also pretty empty--both days we went we had them almost completely to ourselves. It was freezing, and my eyes were constantly watering, not to mention the raccoon carcass we practically tripped over in the sand the first day, but I was happy to while away several hours just wandering the beach with my family. My family is a bunch of weirdos (but we're nice weirdos!), and that's probably part of what makes it so fun.
