Vacation photos, Take 2!

We had fun taking a day trip from where we were staying out to a more remote, tropical island. Actually, we thought it was more remote . . . until we saw the other hordes of tourists getting on the same ferry as us! Remote, but developed, would be a way to describe this lovely island location. Here our friend Chris is holding Clara Anne on the ferry boat ride over. Chris was such a good auntie to Clara Anne and Chloe the whole week we spent together. They had fun playing a little hide-n-seek game!

We ended up sharing the beach with a lot of Asian tourists who were fascinated with Clara Anne and Chloe. The girls didn't mind, though--they just got right to work digging and playing.


This time John built the girls their own small pool--the sand was too fine and wet to make a castle. The girls thought it was Great!



Look, Mommy, underneath that white sand is a layer of gray muck! Fun times!



Chloe loved having her "own" place to play.


Mid-afternoon, a storm started to roll in. The sky turned dark and threatened rain--it was beautiful.

Only a few swimmers left out in the swimming area! Plus the tide was going out, so the water had receded dramatically already.


None of this fazed the girls! Once you're at the beach and wet already, a few raindrops don't matter at all! The weather quickly blew through and we all "washed off" the sand in the ocean before packing up and heading home. Just call us beach bums!

Believe it or not, I have at least one more round of pictures to post . . . so many times on vacation I get caught up having such a good time and forget to take pictures. But this time I was determined to snap a lot, so I still have some to more to share with you. Until next time . . .
