Labor day weekend I was just itching to hit the beach one more time this summer. Sadly we just weren’t able to afford a weekend beach trip to Virginia Beach like I was hoping. Instead we explored a beach in our own backyard in Southern Maryland. Just 45 minutes from our house is a secret gem, Flags Pond State Park. Beach sand, tidal ponds, a fishing pier, and a nearly empty beach awaited these two little boys. They were pleased.
The big one went to work on his sand castle as soon as his feet hit the sand
The little one took his time frolicking in the water
and digging in the wet sand
Stolen moments between mommy and son
Stalking little fish with daddy
Little fish in a big world
There is nothing like digging your toes in the sand
Sitting upon driftwood, calm and serene
Or chucking it high above
My happy place
What will you miss most about the summer? Did you spend time at the beach?
