Yesterday afternoon was the perfect beach day. Amy, David, Lachlan, & I went out about 2 o'clock. Lifeguard beach had quite a few people, including 3rd - 6th graders with the Ocracoke Youth Center. Everyone was having such a great time. There was a minor drop-off not too far from the water's edge, but very little current. So we all had a big pool with fun-sized waves. The "pool" was over Lachlan's head, so mostly he stayed in the shallower area and ran & jumped in the waves with a big infectious smile. What a wonderful place to raise a four year old!
