We went to the beach in late July. It looked like this:
It was lovely.
The whole family was there, so it was lively, too.
I got stung by a jellyfish, no big deal. I hear it gets worse, depending on the jellyfish. I spend a lot of time in the water when at the beach, so I was bound to get stung sooner or later.
Jonah gradually acclimated to the vastness of the ocean, and by the end he was pretty comfortable. But you can’t blame a tiny man for feeling a little intimidated by such a deep, noisy beast.
That’s my head out there in the waves. I like it out there. It’s soothing. Except when getting stung by jellyfish, of course.
Jonah soon learned the wisdom of being prepared. Or of being accessorized. Whichever.
And we finally got a pretty good family portrait.
