Gone for a hike

      This afternoon we went to Middle Cove which is about 10 minutes from the house.  It has a little beach area where you can get close to the water and play.  The waves were too rough today for us to get too close.  Emily, Reagan and Maddie were not fans of the big loud waves, I think they were afraid of being swept away.  Nathan did some exploring on the beach and in a tide pool Nathan found a starfish that is currently being left out to dry so he can keep it.  I was trying to get a picture of all the kid and a BIG wave came in, the girls were able to get out of the way, but Nathan had COLD water up to mid thigh.  He was in a little bit of discomfort, saying "My toes are freezing!" his boots had filled with water.

   After playing by the water for a while we went for a hike on the East Coast Trail, which is a trail that runs the entire length of the east coast.  We only went a small distance on it, but I am ready to do it agian.  There were a few spots that were a bit too close to the cliff edge for small children.  It does not have a fence or any other barrier to prevent you from falling over the edge, most of it is a distance from the cliff edge, with trees between you and the edge, but there are parts that are a little unsafe.

  1. That looks like a beautiful area to explore! The snack photo made me smile. What a terrific family you have and I am sure you'll have a lot more wonderful adventures along that path. Thanks for all the posts. We're enjoying seeing cooler weather. It was 100 degrees in Dubai today!
