We saw the full moon rise out of the ocean tonight! Awe inspiring, magnificent, beautiful. We stood in the warm waves feeling the sand gently pulling at our feet. We held hands and I said, "see if you can remember this moment for your whole lives"

As we are coming off the beach from our morning walk I see this flower nestled in the dunes. I do not notice the delicate dew drops until I am right up close. I am grateful to have paused.
We are half way through the year of going outside everyday. It has changed the way I think of our days. And it has given me permission to stop and notice.
I get up with the sun this morning and head to the beach. The sun bursts through the clouds reflecting on the water below. This is a magical time at the beach. I grew up watching the sun set into the ocean. Now I am on the opposite coast with a different ocean. Warmer, gentler and home of the rising sun.
Today we play in the waves. Summer friends cluster around the sand toys covering legs with sand from the tide pool. My little one holds tight to the boogie board as I pull her through the few inches of water where the waves meet the sand.
The older kids go out deeper to body surf. Parents help them get in position to ride the gentle waves onto shore.
