Down By the Sea

We have just returned from a few days by the sea with family and friends that are like family. It was such a lovely few days. I think my favorite activity was just sitting on the porch and visiting together, but all of it was fun.

We enjoyed the surf.

We enjoyed the sand.

Mik and Alex found that flying a two-string kite is more difficult than expected.

We learned that stand-up paddle boarding is harder than it looks.

Mark found this was the best way up handling the paddle board.

Julie thought this was the preferred way to paddle board.

Ann found her yoga training useful and was able to actually stand up on the stand-up paddle board.

Tim and Gary thought the kayaks sounded like a lot more fun.

We are glad to be home, but we did have fun down by the sea.

What an awesome time! Stand up paddle boarding looks difficult.. but I see it was also fun. I think I would loose balance because I would be laughing so much! :)

Standing out in the middle of the bay, it felt a bit like walking on water. All the jellyfish were good motivation to stay on the board!

What a fun trip it was!
