Various Days at the Beach

We've spent enough time at the pond in the past week that I have a sunburn.  It's not easy to give me a sunburn--you need two or three hours in direct sun with inexpertly applied sunblock.  We just got lucky, I guess.  Fortunately, Adam gets much more sunblock than I do--plus he wears a t-shirt in the water.  So he's fine.

These photos are from a couple of different trips to the beach--one with Marsha, one with just the two of us. 

Every trip to the pond has to start with a picnic, even if it's hours till lunchtime.  Luckily, all you need for a picnic is hummus and veggies to dip in it.  Pita chips are nice, too.

On Wednesday, or neighbor, A, was there, and he and Adam built sand castles together.  A is five years old, so he's out of Adam's league in some ways, but he's a good kid and we had fun.

Of course, I don't have any pictures of us swimming, because I don't have a waterproof camera.  And we spent most of the time swimming.  This kid does not like leaving the water.  It was a lot of fun.  Then, miracle of miracles, he wanted to hide in his towel for a bit while Marsha and I sat in the sun.

Once we were dry and dressed, we went up to the snack bar for an ice cream sandwich--which I fear has now become a standard element of a pond visit.  It's a useful tool for getting him out of the water, though--the only one that worked.

And finally, running in circles around Mama time!  

Not a lot of action pictures, I'm afraid--mostly portraits.  I was having too much fun for documentary photography.  But gosh it's nice to go to the pond!  I might never leave Medford, just because of this.
