Tide Pools...


The best recovery after a few smashing weeks of training is a trip to the tide pools... the search for hermit crabs, fish, sea shells, and other little creatures with a two year old is totally rejuvenating! After watching waves crash into the rocks and checking out every single crevice we were "almost" recovered...







I'm nearly convinced all it takes is a sand pail and shovel to fix some fatigue...

I love reading your blog when you post about the fun you have with Kainoa... as much fun as Moana is now at 3 months, I'm excited for the day when we can go to the beach together and she can discover the wonders of the tide pools! :)

I.love.it. Too cute Bree! I really love the photos of your shadows and the two of you laying on the sand together...and both of your feet in the water. Oh whatever...I love all the photos!! Very sweet! Hope you are fully "recovered" now!!

Your post is spot on!

I feel refreshed myself thinking of rock pooling and sand castles.

Today i have the office window open, the first signs of spring sunshine and warmth, with an ever so slight breeze.

Perfect. Thanks!

Ah - I feel a certain calmness when I look at those pics. How wonderful was that??? One of my fav things to watch kids do is discover and explore and it looks like both of you had a great day doing that.

Bree -

Kids can provide the best recovery period! It's amazing what the little things in life can do for the human body.

Glad to see your training is going very well.
