The beach is just about our favorite place to enjoy a beautiful day. What comes to mind when you spend your day at the beach? What would be on you list?
Watching for whales
Whale watching for me is by far the best thing to do when I am at the coast. Unfortunately where we leased our site it is not a good whale watching location, we have to drive about 60-70 miles north to Depoe Bay for the best whale sightings!
Watching the seals
When it’s high tide the seals swim super close to shore and when the water is clear you can see their entire body swimming along the jetty. They are so cute!
Feeling the sand between your toes
This is the first thing the boys do is ditch their sandals by the same bush each trip. This past weekend some punk actually either took the boys’ shoes or threw them somewhere the boys couldn’t find them, so they lost their beach shoes this past weekend. People can be so cruel.
Playing fetch with the doggies
This is Ryan and Coco’s favorite thing to do. Coco would play fetch till her legs wouldn’t fetch anymore, even if she swallowed a gallon of sand and water she’d still be going strong.
Peaceful reading time
Reading on the beach or along the jetty when their is no wind is simply amazing. When I take in the sounds of the waves lapping on the shore, squawking seabirds, fisherman and the sounds of the buoy’s out past the jetty.
Crabbing on the docks
We have not done this yet, but Jayden seems to be fascinated with crabbing, so we have agreed to get our license and give it a try next weekend. He is obsessed over all of the regulations and how they stay in the cage.
This is mostly Ryan’s thing and he is obsessed with being in the water.
Feeding the squirrels on the jetty
The squirrels here are so tame you can feed them right out of your hand, and they will just about eat anything. We have had about 6 of them around us at one time. The raccoon had even come back this weekend, but I didn’t get any pictures, I just saw his prints in the sand and wholes he had dug at low tide.
If we can time a minus tide to be right at sunrise on a Saturday or Sunday morning we have a ton of fun getting out on the beach and searching for treasures. Agates, shells, sand dollars or whatever we might find…
At any given time we probably have about 3 to 4 frisbees in our Yukon, of all colors, different material and sizes. Frisbee for our family seems to be our go-to thing for our family when we are at a park or the beach.
Would our lists be similar? We are counting down the days till we go back again, hoping the weather is just as beautiful.
