The hotel we stayed at was not fancy, but it was right on the water. It's hard to beat an oceanside view.
The ocean is pretty surreal. We live near English Bay, which has a beach, but it's really not the sort of beach I'm used to. I grew up near Hampton Beach, NH... now that's a beach! This beach was similar.
The sand was soft and powdery, like the kind you would see in an hourglass.
You couldn't see a thing in the distance.
The ground was almost alarmingly flat.
I went on my morning run through sand dunes!
Our first afternoon there, the sky was relatively clear. We could see the ocean from our room, and we could see the other people on the beach. It was chilly, but we went out anyway, and wrote things in the sand.
The next day it was warmer, but the fog was so thick, you couldn't see the ocean from the beach. You couldn't see the beach from the ocean. It was crazy, like you were in limbo or something. Aias was thrilled, however. I've never seen him as happy as he was stomping around in the water.
Azi really liked it, too, but he had to enjoy it from the comfort of the Ergo or my lap.
We also met this guy hiding in the sand.
