The first day of summer.... Yep, this is from my area.
When my kids were small we used to spend hours at the local beaches. One of our favorites, Birch Bay, is only minutes from Red Gate Farm. We'd go at low tide.... when the sand stretched far, far out. With two young kids it was nice to not worry about the water being too close... or too deep. They'd play in the sand and the tide pools. We'd pack a lunch and spend the day.
As they got older we didn't do the day trips much. But we did head to the beaches, looking for beach glass or drift wood... I still have quite a collection. And at the end of the day, we'd stop in at an old store called the C Shop for snow cones. Fun and cool on a hot, summer day.
Looking forward to a long, hot summer...
Full of family and new memories.
