Fun At The Ocean

We had a ball at Shired Island yesterday. It is a very small state park, on the Gulf of Mexico. We have been here a few times, as it is my moms favorite place to go. It was very windy, so we were sort of cold. I am glad I had the extra shirt in the car, even though it did not match at all. The kids got in the water, and romped around, despite it being cold. I didn't find any new shells. They mostly have scallop shells, at this particular part of the Gulf, and I already have tons. I did find a cool block of shells, that formed a unique sculpture. It is on my front porch now. I will take a picture of it to share. We found some kind of critter that made these cool designs by burrowing under the sand. I wanted a horseshoe crab, or blue crab, but didn't find one, no seaglass either. If you look at the pictures you will see an armadillo. It was dead, and partially decayed. I really wanted the shell, but no one, including myself was willing to pick it up, and carry it LOL. I did get my log for our Science experiment. No, not the one the kids are walking on, my husband wouldn't carry it for me. My mother managed to not get in one single picture, not sure how she did that. I am the blonde, and my sister, and her husband have the baseball caps on. They went off to Tampa today to see friends, and we will hook up with them again tomorrow, after I grocery shop. It has gone by fast, and I can't believe it is almost time for them to go back to NC again.

It looks like you had such a nice time. I have never been to this Island but it looks really neat. The palm trees are so pretty. I am glad that you had a nice time.

We had a ball, and even though it was windy, and chilly, it was beautiful.
