|July 5 beach|
What glorious weather for a Fourth of July holiday! You’ve seen my photos of the mostly empty beach on typical days throughout the year, and today (like last July 4) was definitely an exception to the empty beach rule with crowds of happy people playing on the beach and in the waves all day long.
Family joined us to enjoy an afternoon at the beach, too. It’s the only time I can get my husband to sit under an umbrella for, well, any length of time. The grandkids had a blast. Grandson Austin was learning to boogie-board and found great fun with his sister by digging in a big sand hole and sliding down the sand! Oh, and, lastly, I post a photo of another almost brave young woman who faced the incoming wave from her hole in the sand, but soon skedaddled.
For contrast, I end with a photo of the beach on July 5. (Still a wonderful day!)
