An Adventurous Beach Day

So we didn't plan on this being our last beach day. We had planned on having one more but when we got to the park the road was closed which meant we would have to make the trek on foot to the beach. We decided to hike the dunes and thus started our great adventure. We first had to hike through some woods to get to the dunes.
Josh showed the kids some snake grass and how you can break it apart.
We then came to this creek. Now my first reaction was, "There is no way I'm crossing that with the baby attached to my front in the carrier." Josh went across and mentioned it was a little slippery due to the clay at the bottom. Liah fell with her first step in but thankfully she thought it was funny. Blake made his way across very carefully and so did I. It was a miracle that I didn't fall. Josh didn't mention just how slippery it was. We then got to hike up this STEEP dune that I thought I was never going to get up. Hannah was holding on for dear life to the straps of the Bjorn. Every two steps you would take you would slide down one.
We did make it to the top though.
The kids had a great time. It was a great adventure to them.
Here is a great shot of the results of the creek mishap. Thankfully Nature Bright even gets out clay stains.
We sat on the dune while the kids ran up and down. I should say ran and fell down the dunes.
Here they are making one of the many ascents up.
As we were walking back we got to see a beautiful sunset.
Blake wasn't to happy that we were walking back on the road. He wanted to go back the way we came and go through the creek again. Mommy wasn't feeling that adventurous though. We went to Oink's for ice cream on the way home. It was a great last Beach Day in 2008.
