Normally, on the last day of our trip, we bring a loaf of bread out to the beach to feed the seagulls. We love to feed the seagulls (aka sky rats!) but they sort of scare us because they are SO BIG...like, two times our size!
Christina spent a while boogie boarding in the waves. She's really good at it, even though she's younger than me!
I, on the other hand, couldn't wait to get started looking for a sand dollar. I dreamed I found one... and I cant wait to have my dream come true! Before leaving on our trip, I researched where the best place to look for sand dollars would be. I found out its best to hunt at low tide but we always get out to the beach late because it takes us SO LONG to get ready. Today, though... we got up super early so we could have as much time as possible to enjoy our last day.
After lunch, I continued my search and there it was! Oh my goodness! It can NOT be true!!
It IS! It's a sand dollar! Whoo-hoo! Yippee! I rushed back to show Christina... being careful not to drop it! She was very happy for me and said that I must have a VERY good eye!
Towards the end of our day, we decided to do some cool things in the sand. Christina wrote "SISTERS" in big letters! What a special memory!
When my mom was little, her and her best friend went to this very same beach! Her friend thought it would be cool to draw a big heart in the sand and stand in it together. We thought we would do the same thing to carry on the tradition!
Well, at the end of the day, we didn't want to leave. I can't believe this trip has flown by so fast! It feels like our first day out on the beach was just yesterday. ♥ Good-bye beautiful beach...until next summer!
