After checking out the sea turtles, we went to a nearby beach to play.
Unfortunately the flag was red, warning us that the waves were dangerous. So we decided to hang out on the rocks and sand, and not get too wet.
It traumatized the kids. They were scared about almost being washed away. So we ate lunch and played on the playground on the other side of the hill, by the beach parking lot until they dried off and calmed down a little.
This is the note we found later...
So I guess that was our last beach trip ever.
But think about the memories we made -- our kids will always say, "remember that Thanksgiving when we got sucked into the ocean by a rogue wave?" And we'll all chuckle and nod.
Thanks for letting us visit you, Merryberry googenheimer.
It was a great Thanksgiving, despite nearly losing our beach chairs, sand toys, and Benjamin...
