beach trip

Call us crazy but we headed out to the Lincoln City today. Ben will be working CPA hours here soon so we decided to get our last beach trip in for a few months. (Last week Ben too the kids to the zoo in the freezing weather.) It was a good time. It rained the entire ride over and really started to pour about 10 minutes outside of Lincoln City. But as we got there it stopped raining. We always go to the less crowded beach to the right as you come into town. So we bundled up in coats, gloves, hats, scarves. Not the normal gear we usually wear to the beach. It was high tide as we got there so we were excited to start looking for shells. Half way down the beach we realized as the waves brought in the smooth, soft rocks they would roll and tumble over each other. It made this sound that Alicia said sounded like fireworks. I think it reminded my of a windchime. It was really beautiful.
After our 40 minutes on the beach we went to lunch and then headed home. It was a nice family day.
