Brewster Beach

Day two of our annual Cape trip (2008, 2007)we decided to check out the beach on the inside of the Cape. We've always gone to the National Seashore which has great waves that crash into the beach. Its fun, but not exactly kid-friendly.

Truth be told, Tessa doesn't like the beach. It might be the waves, Daddy swimming in the waves, the hard-to-walk-on sand, or the bright sun. I say that because this none of those things were at this beach and she had a blast. At low tide the wet, firm sand stretched out as far as the eye could see, which wasn't far with the cloud cover.

Second truth be told, people as white as we are shouldn't be seen in full sunlight. Go ahead and agree, we aren't offended. (Unless the fear of seeing one of us in a bikini is the real reason our friends all decided not to join us on our camping weekend...hum?)

(Its a good thing I have Aaron around to do the really tough things, like ask the locals tending their oyster beds to take our picture - locals love that)

The video below makes me laugh so much. But you really may have needed to be there. Daddy and Momma had great plans for the architectural wonder they were going to construct. Tessa had a great time smashing any attempt (just like a little planning and zoning board). Aaron challenged me to stack the small bucket on top of the large bucket. At 0:10 seconds notice my attempt to distract Godzilla/Tessa.

It looks like you guys had so much fun. Sometime you should come out to the OTHER coast and we'll get a yurt and do some "little kids" camping and play at some really calm beaches.

I loved the planning and zoning comment. Very archictural humor that I am going to laugh along with even though I don't know what they actually do.

The video was awesome!

Great post! I LOVE that picture at the top. I really wish I could learn some more photoshop tricks from you.

Tessa has SUCH a cute laugh! How could you not giggle along with that video?

So i basically am going to say exactly what Laura said. I love that top picture; it is sooo cool. And I love the architects in both of you trying to distract the destroyer by smiling.
Did you see Lilo & Stitch?
