Rei enjoys the sand at the beach. It's what she likes best. The water, she could just as easily do without. So just out of the parking lot, as soon as we hit sand, Rei set up camp and for a while, we thought this was as close as we would get to the beach:
But eventually we worked our way down to the landing and encouraged (chased) by the appearance of a dog to rest at the same elevation as the lake.
Her brother was taking it all in, not really caring where we were.
The last time we had a family outing to this section of beach, Shelley had a baby the next morning. I guarantee this will not be the case this time.
