04/02/10 - Fun in the Sun!
We made it down to Fort Fisher yesterday to go to the NC Aquarium and then instead of driving back over to Wrightsville Beach to swim, we swam right there in the state park. Very nice parking area and facilities at that spot and FREE. All that is there was built post Fran in 1996 so maybe that facility is 10 years old.
This is Johnny having a blast in the water. (Note to self: Go buy him some matching swim trunks to go along with that water shirt!) The water temp was, gulp, 55 yesterday. The air temps was in the mid 80s though. Cold water has never stopped either of my boys from going in the ocean, and yesterday was no exception. Very few adults in the water but quite a few other kids in. At the request of my boys, I even braved getting wet up to my knees twice. Brrrrrrrr!!!
They frolicked in the water, practiced their swim kicks, collected shells, built a sand castle, and played with some other boys on the beach trying to do what man can't really do...reroute the ocean. Fun stuff!
I crashed and burned bad last night. A day in the sun will do that to a person. Good kindof tired, though.
Not sure what we're doing today, but I am sure it will be fun and I'm sure I'll take pictures:-) And I will make more comments!
