Vacation time! It has been 318 days since our last visit to the beach and we decided to relax and unwind at the beach once again. The Stolks also came and it was very nice have Grandparents there to enjoy it with.
Our plans (which almost always unexpectedly change) changed. We had planned on leaving at 6am Saturday morning. 6am came and we got a knock on our door from the Stolks. We weren't up and ready. No one's alarm had gone off except for Damarise's and Sarah's. So Dad and Mom over slept. Oh well. Around 7am we hit the road :)
We spent most the day indoors relaxing, reading, sleeping and playing games. Damarise went out when the sun was setting and got some pictures.
Damarise and I played Scrabble all the time! It was the only game we had there, but even if we had more I think we still would've played Scrabble. It was so much fun!
In the afternoon on Day 2, Damarise and I walked down the beach so that Damarise could go snappin' different stuff. The boats were especially photogenic. ;)
Then we had some fun with pictures of ourselves :)
When we came back from our walk Mom was sitting on the porch reading. The wind was strong so you couldn't hear anything. We took the opportunity and scared Mom :)
We went to another hotel type place in Chocas where a lady taught Sarah an art lesson. (Mom and Dad had helped her find a place to stay the first day.)
Damarise and I went home before the others with Oupa Mike and Ouma Hilda.
We went on a long walk with Mom around the beach. And had a few splash fights... haha, poor mom was splashing the wrong way and, because of the wind, it all blew back on her. But, don't worry she got me later when we changed directions.
Floating... the current was pretty strong, so you could float on your back and it would take you down stream.
This sign cracked me up! It was the goodbye sign when you left the bay part. It's probably to small for you to read, so here's what it says :
Thank youfor the time shared with usfor the sparkle in your surprised eyeand for the care taken of our environmentWe apologizefor the times you wish you were here.
This was my favourite part of the whole vacation! Yes, reading on the hammock, outside with the sound of waves crashing and a view of the ocean a few yards away from me.
We had a wonderful time at the beach getting to unwind and relax. And definitely had loads of fun in the sun :)
