We found a great dry spot to heat up some amazing beans and rice dish Nicole made. Oh man a hot lunch on a rainy hike seriously made my day! Then we ran around in the sand for awhile and started to wander farther down the beach.
|this little guy wanted to be our friend|
The ocean was at a very low tide and a bunch of kelp and other plants made it look like the ocean had thrown up all over the shore. We swung on a buoy hung from a tree, played in the sand and chased the waves for a few hours before we headed back.
While waiting for the ferry home we happened upon a $1.50 waffle soft serve cone!! and a live pretty awful dad rock band which made for a pretty fun end to the weekend.
It was one of the best 4th of July's I've had in a long time and even though we didn't really plan anything it all happened to work out just when it needed to which kind of added to the weekend's magic!
