We got to borrow Jessica for a couple of days this week. We had plans to go visit Jon’s mom on the Cape, so off we went to the beach, only to find out that JESSICA HAS NEVER BEEN TO THE BEACH! This is pretty much unfathomable to me, and I have made it my mission to take this child to as many beaches as she can stand for the rest of the summer.
We lucked into one of the most perfect beach days ever. Perfect weather, perfect water, lots of fun. I remembered that this particular beach was a pretty good shell picking beach, but I had never seen anything like the deep line of shells stretching down the beach that day.
Rowan says it’s the mermaids who put the shells on the beach. She should know. I hear she’s got a bit of mermaid blood herself.
