I’ve been meaning to make it to the beach for awhile for a Little Explorer post and the weather just wasn’t cooperative so Søren and I didn’t make it there until a few weeks ago. We stopped by Neary Lagoon Park first, then had our lunch at nearby Lighthouse Field State Beach in Santa Cruz, California.

Søren has calmed down during our dates and slows to ask to hold my hand. He had a full conversation with some of the birds there, “read” all of the informational signs, and he stopped to admire some sticks on the ground. I love to follow him around and observe silently as he discovers the world around him. It sounds so cliche but I learn so much from watching the world through his eyes. He met another little boy there who was only four days older than him and they took to each other immediately. It was really cute to see them converse and play together for a few minutes. We stopped to admire the surfers near the light house and had a quick lunch as  the rain began to close in again.

    1. It was very peaceful, especially with the weather not as nice as it could have been. The people we did come across were very friendly. Søren even made a friend!
