The fact that we got to go to the beach, swim in the ocean, and work on a tan in October is unreal to me. Yesterday’s high hit record temperatures so I think a day at the beach was appropriate. We went fairly early and left when most people were starting to arrive. Two toddlers tried to make friends with us instead of each other. The water was cold but not unbearable. I hope we’ll be spending more sunny days at the beach even as the weather gets cooler.
