Who needs crocodiles?

Around here we go sea glass hunting!

This weekend we went to the beach without really going to the beach. No swimsuits. No lugging of sand toys and chairs and umbrellas (oh my!). No, instead we went to the beach light-style and took a stroll while looking for some sea glass. We played peek a boo with more than a few crabs and watched the tiny fishes surf the waves near shore.

Sunday we carried on the tradition of going to the beach light and with just a take out order of pancakes, some OJ and a towel, we headed out for breakfast on the beach. We found a stick for Duke to fetch and tree to play drums on. It was a blast. An easy breezy blast.

It was a weekend of less sand, less mess, less for mommy and daddy to carry but still with the same great memories made and fun times had.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!


  1. I could use some of the beautiful weather and scenery right about now.
    What a great way to spend an afternoon.

  2. So jealous that you can find sea glass. While we’re near a beach the most we find is broken fireworks and trash. Less mess makes everyone happy!

  3. Those are my favorite trips to the beach! Just to walk, look at tide pools and enjoy the outdoors.

  4. I wish I lived that close to a beach. It looks so beautiful.

  5. My heart aches for Hawaii…it looks so beautiful. Am I too idealistic or is it really that awesome?

    • @Deirdre,

      I have to say…

      It’s even MORE awesome. I can’t capture the awesomeness that is Hawaii. We live here and say daily, “This place is AMAZING!” or “I can’t believe we live here.” I often pinch myself :) I LOVE HAWAII!! =))

      • @Sarah,
        Is it really as expensive (food, the basics) as I hear about? Or is that a result of people trying to protect such a special place by scaring people off?

        • @Deirdre,

          It’s all relative based on where you moved from. Yes, things are more expensive in general but you learn to shop around for what you need to get the best prices. Gas is currently almost $4/gallon but we drive less. You also get kamaaina (local) discounts with a Hawaii drivers license. Energy is expensive though, that took a lot of getting used to.

          Oh and I shop less thanks to not having a Target on island ;)

  6. Where you live is just beyond beautiful! I would love to take the kids looking for sea glass!

    @SarahBHawaii My wedding ring is sea glass found on Maui!

  9. It must be so awesome living on the real beach. We live at a lake. The Dudes call it the beach, but it’s not. Not even close. We love it and all, but after spending a week on the actually ocean this summer, I can see how people could get used to calling it home pretty quickly!
