What a fabulous trip! Sorry it took so long for me to post pictures. It took me a while to wade through the hundreds - yes, hundreds of photos to choose from. Kyle was a great little traveller - not a single negative peep out of him for the 6 hours in either direction. Of course, there was the occasional "uh oh" or signing for "all done". But after 6 hours in the car, who isn't "all done" :o).
Kyle LOVED the ocean, much to my surprise. While he was pretty cautious with it, but he was fairly certain he ruled the beach! I suppose it was the space. The beach is so wide there at low tide that he had plenty of running room. We visited the Cherry Beach Pier and Alligator Adventure where he got to see a live version of his favorite animal, Zooboomafoo, a lemur. Of course, there were lots of seagulls. Though Kyle couldn't imagine why they wouldn't stand still for him as he ran at them yelling "Twee, twee" (his sound for birds). He even stayed up after bedtime to run in the dusk on the beach - barefoot!! That was almost more than he could stand.
All in all, it was really a fun trip and we are looking forward to more beach vacations!
