where looks can be deceving. It was a beautiful spot but you couldn’t spot the strong current until you got caught in it. Both girls were aided by a person onshore, Kevin & I, who had left after them, managed once we realized you could stand a bit further around…. but it was scary for the girls. Of course, then we had to get back to the other side… which we managed by walking further up the sand and coming back on an angle. It was certainly an eventful outing….

    I love seeing all the beach pictures on your blog. It makes me realize that the cold and the snow will be over with soon enough up here in the North East and the beach will be calling again…

    It’s so much fun to plan vacations! Disney is so much fun 🙂
