once we got past the initial shock, we decided to just jump in and enjoy
the trip. After all, the water was still clear, blue, and warm, the sand
was white, and it certainly was easier to take things easy with all the
modern convieniences around (which is a good things with little kids!!).
Breck and Alea both took the directive 'jump right in' literally! In fact,
on one occasion, we actually lost Breck, only to find him wandering the
beach. It seems that both of our kids are natural born beach bums!!
days just kind of flowed into one another. We'd usually wander down to
the end of West Bay to play in the water and snorkel first thing in the
morning. That is where the snorkeling is best, the crowds thinnest, and
the little schools of fish thickest. Since we were usually up with the
sun, this was a nice mellow start to our day.
would follow, always served with a 'family touch.' On Easter morning, for
example, we all got colored eggs served on a nest of grass. Those went
over well, almost as well as the flowers that Dave told Alea were OK to
eat. She had 3 of them the first morning and refused to eat anything else
And then the morning activities would
continue. On several mornings we went over to West End for shopping and
kitty-petting, we'd always spend at least an hour in the water splashing,
and the rest of the time Breck devoted to scoping out the chicks.
