Saturday night, most of the family was gathered and Hubbie's Mom cooked hot dogs and everyone brought very tasty sides. Ri and i helped Grandma with clean up, and some of us hit the beach to play in the waves afterwards.
Monday and Tuesday were more of the same, more beach playing, wave hopping, dinner eating.

Tuesday we hosted dinner with a lasagna feed. It was the last night that all the family was going to be in town together. Good chance for everyone to unload leftovers too.
We stayed a couple more days to round out the week. It was fortunate, too, because we got to see the trawlers out in the ocean one day.

And our last day there, the sun came out and we were able to see lots of interesting things that had washing up on the beach--jellyfish and kelp namely. I collected a ton of sand dollars for a Christmas project and we got to watch the sunset our last night there. Did you know that the sand dollar has a legend surrounding it that relates to Catholicism? Once i get all our treasures unpacked, i'll post about it.
All in all, a great trip. And one that i hope we have to look forward to for many years to come. It got Hubbie and i thinking about trying to find an old place there and fixing it up for our family, since it is such a place of significance for us.
Hope you all had a great week; i am really excited to sit down with a cuppa and catch up on all the cool posts you did while we were away! Toodles!
