The guy he was visiting told him the beach was a minute away so we planned on walking the beach while he was there.
We ate our dinner in the car on the drive down. I'm glad we went as Scott was really tired and I think it was better that I drove.
I'd never been down on this beach although I'd driven past this guys house more times than I can count. I just didn't realize there was a route to the beach the way he sent us. It is really nice there. Much like every other beach here but still nice.
We did find one thing different which I am still unsure about. There were rocks all over that reminded me of bricks. They were orange-red in color and had a texture that was almost brick-like. Do you know what they are or why they would be there?
We also found several pieces of sea glass. We were quite proud even though there were no stupendous pieces. It always turns into a challenge or game for us. Last night Cori was the winner. She find the most and one piece that was pretty neat. (Although we can't currently find it-we think it fell on the floor in the kitchen somewhere.) Cali found her first piece ever. I don't think Cassi found any but she doesn't typically get as into the contests as Cori does.
Tell me what you know about sea glass. It is my theory that every time I might have a beer at a bonfire on the beach it should be my duty to break the glass and toss it into the sea, thereby contributing to the collectors of the world.
If I break it first, certainly I take away the floating garbage factor right. I immediately set in motion the polishing process. I'm still unsure though, what do you think? And did you know there is a science and art to sea glass? Seriously, check out this website or this one. There is even a sea glass association. Regardless of how it gets there, we sure have fun looking for it.
This is our view from the beach as the sun set.
And if we looked back over our shoulder, we saw this.
While I was watching my girls stroll along, I couldn't help but think how Alaskan they looked. Those of you not from here might not understand but there something about people here that often just looks Alaska. (And I am not talking about being native.)
Cori in her Dad's carhart is just about the epitome of the Alaskan woman.
Cali in her rubber boots and over-sized borrowed coat looking like the child of a fisherman.
And Cassi practicing being a princess on the beach in her uggs and fuzzy hat looking like this is something she does everyday. And it is...almost.
Kind of cool I think. I'm glad we went.
Come visit, we'll take you there. :)
