The drive to the ocean was beautiful … How did we spend the miles? The kids watched a couple of movies, I read and we played ‘name that TV tune.’ My husband had a collection on his ipod of famous TV theme songs (there must have been an option on iTunes called – TV theme songs) b/c I have no idea how he had so many! :) I didn’t grow up on TV (we didn’t have one). So I was thrilled with the ones I did get right – The Flinstones, The Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island, The Adams Family and Bewitched. It was wonderful to finally arrive at the ocean. Our sons – Kade & Kaleb couldn’t wait to run in the waves and hunt for crabs. (See photo above).
North Head Lighthouse – Our entire family went up inside this lighthouse. Viewing the ocean from the top of a lighthouse is beyond words…. If you ever get the chance, take a lighthouse tour!
The sand – We had gorgeous weather and soaked up a lot of sun! We played in the sand and hunted for sand dollars. We built a sandcastle and a mermaid on the beach …. It was so relaxing!!
Lauren and Wendy - Hat shopping along the ocean
Hat shops – There are many hat shops along the sea… Its family tradition for us to stop in as many as possible and try on hats!
Cheers to summer and the trips that make them memorable.
