But you know how there are people that prefer skiing in the mountains or relaxing on the beach or riding ATV's in the dessert or in the woods...
Well...I have now come to question if we are beach people.
I won't completely say that we are not. I have only been to the beaches in North Carolina. I've never been to a west coast beach or a gulf coast beach. So until I do...I will not commit to my decision either way.
However I will say...the Atlantic is freakin cold. And I can't see to the bottom even in shallow water. And the sand isn't exactly soft like I imagine it to be. And walking a mile toting all our beach stuff past all the dunes in the sand to get to the water...isn't appealing to any of us.
I don't know why but I LOVE this picture.
So Scarlett O'Hara don't ya think?
Ohhh...woe is me...the sand it sticking
to my toes and I don't like it...ohhh.
Now if I could walk out my beach house and have it right there...out the back door...and the water be a little warmer...and clearer...that might be different. And we do love the atmosphere at the beach and we love the sun and the cute clothes and the beach hats. So I'm not sure it would take a whole lot more to convince me we are beach people.
But...Q-Tip wasn't digging the sand much. She wanted it off her feet. And she wasn't digging the 20 degree water temp either. Okay so it was really like 70...but she still wasn't impressed.
I have no idea how my camera did this but I wish I knew.
So her first trip to the beach wasn't really something to write home about I don't think. She didn't last long.
But I got some pretty cute pictures I think. One more...
And due to the water temp...and her not liking the sand all that much...that was our only trip to the beach the whole time we were there.
We'll have to try again when she is a little older.
