Every day is a beach day!
New England is the perfect place to live. We experience four very different, yet beautiful seasons and in a matter of hours we can be at the mountains, beaches or fabulous cities.
On Saturday afternoon, we took a ride down to Hull, MA on the south shore and took the kids to Nantasket Beach. This is the same beach that as a child, Chris spent his entire summer soaking up the sun and waves. The kids have heard many stories about the beach and today they got to share Daddy's beach.
In New England, we have a saying, "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes." Today was that type of day. It was pouring rain on our drive down to Weymouth. When we arrived at Pop's and Grandma's the rain stopped and the skies brightened. When we arrived at the beach it was perfect. Cloudy, low tide and no people. The kids body surfed, collected shells and even chased the seagulls. You do not need sunshine to enjoy the beach, because everyday is a beach day!
