The kids had fun playing hide and seek
Grandma and Grandpa with Evie - Happy Birthday Grandpa Malcolm.
This isn't the beach, it's actually the sandy dirt around a tree - our kids certainly love playing in the dirt and it seems they can find it anywhere...
Ethan is trying to figure out his plan of attack for eating the sandy dirt - "do I just go face first?"
Evie is doing some exploring herself
We enjoyed lunch on the pier. The food was good, the view was beautiful and the sun was so warm. I could have curled up in the booth and took a nap after lunch.
The Dory Fishing Fleet, the only one of its kind in the U.S., began with a fisherman tired of selling his fish to the wholesalers. He supposedly began selling his fish on the beach to an eager public who purchased his fresh fish, saving money and getting the best product. The Dory Fleet Market, was dedicated as an historical landmark by Newport Beach Historical Society in June 1969. The day’s catch is sold out of weather-beaten boats that function as sales counters and table tops where fish are beheaded and cleaned before customers’ eyes.
The kids had fun playing in the sand and getting soaked. The breeze was chilly but the sun was warm.
Ethan had fun splashing but it didn't take him long before he sat down and was completely soaked.
