My kids love the book Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans, and one of my favorite lines has always been "...inside it was warm and dry, and so ten days passed quickly by." Weighted words, and never more appropriate than when describing a week at the shore.
Every morning the kids wake up and ask how many more days we still have at the beach.
We are playing in tidal pools, splashing in waves, flying kites, and napping in strollers as the ocean's gentle song plays a hundred yards away.
Life is good.
