Fun in the Sun

We've had a lot of fun over the weekends lately, with the weather improving and the sun coming out often! We've been able to sneak away to the beach as much as we can, packed with sweat shirts and lots of snacks and water, we spend time in the place we enjoy the most!

The beaches near us have a lot of nice areas we can visit, and one of the cool things is there are a lot of rocks around to spend what the little man and I enjoy the most, hunting for animals! We don't keep them, but we do find them and put them in a bucket for fun for a few hours before releasing them.

Some of the cool treasures that we found recently were something we haven't seen before but at the same time, we haven't been out hunting this early in the season. The really cool one we've never seen before were these eels! A little worm was hanging out in there with him but the eels I think are spawning so that's why we are seeing them where we never do otherwise.

The rock I found the eel under had these eggs on it, I have no idea what kind of eggs they are but with the eel there and not seeing these eggs in any other scenario, I am assuming it was related to the eel!

Got some huge shrimp, relatively speaking for a bunch of tide pools, under the rocks. This was the biggest one I think we found.

Want some time to fight bro?!?! Let's go! Lol this crab was ready for a brawl that's for sure, when I found him he was claws out, balls out for sure! This was the biggest one we found so far this year.

It's been cool to find the treasures like this sea urchin. I haven't found many of these on this beach so it was nice to see.

We wouldn't be at the beach though without the fun of building a sand castle! We got to the beach as the tide was coming in so we caught the crabs and stuff and then when the rocks were covered, went over to building some sand castles. I wanted to watch the castle get destroyed by the ocean but it started to rain a little bit and the little man needed more water so we had to leave. Was still fun to build though!

It was really surprising, this sea gull somehow caught a fish! We usually see them with crabs and stuff but this one caught a haddock or something, I don't know what type of fish it was except that it was the flat ones.

Always love hitting the beach!

Hey I'm doing some of that beach stuff too.

That's awesome man, I love the beach! It's definitely one of our favorite places to be.

Looks awesome man! We are several weeks behind on my goal for being there, the wife wants to find a few places for us to look at before we get there. I did apply for two jobs there so fingers crossed I get one of them!

Looks like fun - Hattie would love that. I can't wait to get back CA at some point to show her the ocean

Yeah, the ocean is a remarkable place to be for sure! I'm sure Cali has some remarkable beaches, never been there myself! We are hoping to move to Florida sometime over the next couple months so it will be nice to hopefully be near a beach all year round lol. The little man tries to guilt is by saying things like "I wish we lived closer to the beach so we could go every day" out of nowhere, pulls on your heart strings! lol

Oh yeah, Florida is very nice too; my father-in-law used to live in Islamorada. I used to love to visit, although the beaches were rocky if I recall. Yet the seafood down there...hogfish? That might be the most amazing fish I've ever eaten...

I've never heard or tried it so I will make a plan to give it a try when we get down there! I will miss the delicious fresh New England haddock though, that's my current favorite!
