Once we were settled in the Raynes’ house in Waldport, we headed straight out to the beach. The kids have been working really hard since school got out to earn their pins and get their next reward.
Malia told us that New Port is a big kiting area, so we were excited to get the kids out with their new kites.
So while Leah stayed back and worked on dinner, we headed to short distance to the water. Branny lead the way.
The wind was insane that day.
We set out stuff down behind a log, as the sand on the shore stung our skin.
We made the best of it, and with little effort we got the kites in the air. Branny and Mirah had a blast with the unicorn.
It was very windy, but so beautiful.
I mean look at the rocks on the shore!
Then came the dragon!!
Luke’s kite was so cool, he and Karl were having a blast.
We were really struggling with the wind, so we ended up going in faster than we meant to. There were wild strawberries on the beach, it was just so magical.
We got back to the house, and Momo found his new best friend.
It was a nice Sunday afternoon. Leah had made dinner, and Karl worked on a puzzle.
Dinner was to be Carniatas, but it was taking a little while longer than we thought, so we headed out to look around.
It was crabbing season, and when we got out to the docks, we saw people pulling their pots out of the water, and so we went over and took a closer look.
This gut got a few, but while he was measuring his haul, he got a pretty bad pinch on his finger, so bad he BLED!
Sweet Leah, she took the time to show the kids one of the little guys up close.
Then she and Lucas threw him back together.
Dinner was increadble, the kids were in bed a little late, and we all stayed up talking, listening to the ocean and laughing.
