Now that school is out Søren and I have an extra guest (sometimes two) on our Little Explorer outings. We headed to Moss Landing State Beach recently and although the weather was not sunny, it was perfect. During our visit last August, we spent most of our time whale watching and basking in the sun. One of our favorite things about this beach is that even in the height of the season, it isn’t crowded. Parking is free and easy, and the restroom situation is questionable at best. The beach provides plenty of wildlife sightings, with birds, otters, sea lions, and whales nearby.
Søren was very excited to be at the beach but he still lacks some basic beach etiquette. His favorite activity is demolishing anything Aiden makes, so a beach trip is not always without a few bumps along the way. He is all kinds of closed eyes, gaped mouth smiling happy about spending more time with Aiden. Aiden, however, is still adjusting to Summer break so he keeps his distance some of the time. I think my favorite moments will be the quiet ones when they play nicely together. I’m sure Søren will outgrow the “Threenager” phase at some point. He has to, right?
