As soon as we got back from Maui, I didn’t waste any time returning to the beach in California. Aiden, Søren, and I met one of my good friends at Rio Del Mar Beach in Aptos, California for a day of fun. Aiden is friends with her son so they got to play while we caught up and Søren played in the sand. There were lots of games between everyone, and they even had cornhole set up.
The boys dug holes and built sand castles. Søren went down to the water with me and we looked for sand crabs. There was lots more nature exploration, and my friend even caught a few sand crabs for the boys to look at. I’ve never been good at catching them, and they kind of creep me out since they don’t look like traditional crabs. We found a few opalescent shells, but nothing to get excited over. For how many kids we had in our group, it was still a pretty relaxing day.
