Been Off To The Beach

Blogged under Friends,Pictures by Luke on Tuesday 13 September 2005 at 10:12 am

We did it again. We’ve stayed away from the blog a little while, sorry. We were off to the beach for a few days and away from the computer. To extend the issue, Dad went off on business right after the Sunday return and is only now able to get away for a moment to get a post up. Believe it or not this post is coordinated between Mom at home (uploading the pictures) and Dad in Helsinki, Finland (typing the post).

Anyways, this past weekend Mara got to travel to Emerald Isle for her second visit to the ocean. She was actually at the ocean one other time back on Memorial Day. This was a little more experiential since she is now older. We can also put sunscreen on her so that means a little more sun exposure is OK. We stayed with two other families, one with 3 boys (Anton, Viktor, and Max) and one with 2 boys (Aidan and Pierce) so Mara was the only girl there. She held her own though. It was fun to see them all “playing” together and it was good because Mara doesn’t necessarily get to do that too often. She enjoyed watching all the boys and the attention she got.

We got a bunch of pictures so we created a separate album for them and posted what we could. There are a few teaser pictures below, but click on any of them to be taken to the full album. We should also be able to post some video next week of the trip, but it is limited. The day we were going to take the beach footage was the day that Ophelia decided to make her presence known. She didn’t hit while we were there but she kicked up the surf and wind a notch by Saturday enough to keep Mara off the beach.
