Yesterday the kids and I took Karen, Megan and Carson S. to Mexico Beach. Well, we first went to Windmark Beach, but there was so much seaweed, the yellow flies were bad and there were NO waves! ;)
So, we packed up and drove a few miles to Mexico Beach. We ate our lunch from Subway at the picnic area first. We got 4 foot longs for the price of 3 since they messed up on our order!! :) They also gave us 3 free cookies!!
Then we drove down to the beach. There were no waves here either (I guess it was just a calm day) but we found lots of interesting sea life! The lack of seaweed was also a big plus! :)
Tamara spent her day building sand castles and dipping her toes in the water.
(That's what women issues do to you! :( )
Danny and Carson
Megan soaking in some rays!
My friend, Karen~ It was a relaxing day for us and I think we both needed that!
This was not the normal....most of the time they were looking for sea creatures!
Just a few things we found....one of 3 or 4 jellyfish we found. It was so small!
This crab had barnacles and sea weed growing on him! :) Wonder how old he was?
There were lots of dragonflies. One landed on Tamara's hat.
Danny & Megan....they are only 20 days apart in age and shared a love for finding creatures in the water!
We saw stingrays, needlefish, sharksuckers and some other little white fish that liked to nibble at your toes if you were still too long. :P
The kids sat at the edge of the water and rode the surf.
We found a body sticking out of the sand! :)
The release of Mr. Crab...
It was a fun day. But man, that sun tires you out!! :)
