A few days before New Year’s Eve, my cousins and I were just so bored out of our wits that we decided on a whim to go to the beach!
This would be great, too, because my nephew, Brody, has never been to the beach. He loves playing with my sand decor (yes, I designed my room’s window sill with bowls and bowls of sand from diff beaches) that I thought he would have a field day at the beach. And he did!
Holiday season meant fully-booked hotels and inns but we got lucky and scored the last 2 rooms at a beach front lodge. I’m sure those rooms were the last ones in the whole area.
Later in the evening, before we commenced with our beer-by-the-beach sesh, Enna announced that she forgot her toothbrush and would like us to accompany her to town to get one. It was near midnight and we were trudging the 10-minute walk to town. The travails we put ourselves into just for a single toothbrush… *sigh*
The next morning was sunny and my nephew was a mix of happy and anxious at his first sight of the sea! He spent the whole morning playing in the water and the sand – which I think he enjoyed more.
It’s not like we haven’t hung out in years, it’s just the first time that we all went on a trip with no old folks with us. We’re all grown up now and live on our own already so I guess trips like this are important to keep the bond tight. Can’t wait for this year’s trip! ❤
