An Afternoon at the Beach.....

Ocean Tide

Rocky Beach


Little Brother & Me

Walking Back

It was just my little brother and I for a good five hours at the beach on Tuesday.  We had the best afternoon visiting the Dungeness Spit!!!  It is a rocky beach covered with beautiful stones, but close to the water we found some sand to lay out our blanket.  The sound and motion of the waves were so peaceful, as the tide slowly came in.  We took time to make a sandcastle, and wade in the cold ocean water until our legs were numb.  Our beach blanket was hot from the sun, and felt amazing!  We listed to music on my ipod, and just relaxed.  The above photo is the early evening sun hitting the tall trees, on our short half mile hike back to the parking lot.  My little brother told me he was very happy we could spend time together, just the two of us.  He has been asking me to take him back every day since : )
