Beach Journal – Days 1 & 2 + Photos + 50 FOLLOWERS??? WHAT!?! + 2 surprises!

Hello! Wow this is a long title. XD Yesterday, I decided it would be fun to journal what I’ve been doing at the beach these past few days! Then I have a few surprises! 😉

Dear Journal,

Today I woke up around 6:20 and went out to the couch and read. It was very relaxing. We had a big breakfast and then around 9 we headed out to the beach! It was a pretty nice day. We sat around and built sand castles and sculptures, hunted for shells, and played in the waves! Then we went in for lunch. After that, back out to the beach! We just laid on the beach this time, mainly because it was so windy.

Then we went back inside and decided to go play tennis. My mom and dad were going to play but then they had to go to the store for some things. So instead I played with my brother, cousin, aunt, and uncle. Let me tell you… I am not very good at tennis. I haven’t played since the last time we were at the beach XD So…. for a little I threw tennis balls for my little brother and cousin to hit while my aunt and uncle played a game. They are very good at tennis 😉 Then we all played a game where you couldn’t let the ball stop bouncing. It was girls against boys. (me and my aunt vs. my uncle, brother, and cousin) For example my uncle hits a ball over to my side of the court and we have to hit it back before it stops bouncing. If it stops bouncing their side gets a point. The girls won! 13-12!

Lastly we had supper and watched a movie. Before, I watched part of a baseball game!

Dear Journal,

I woke up at 7:30 today and had pancakes for breakfast! We went out to the beach afterwards but it was super windy and cold, so not much swimming was involved 😛 We flew my dad’s big kites instead. The wind was blowing too hard to fly the big one so we brought out the smaller one instead and flew that.

Then we went on a really long walk up to this big hill over the sand about a mile away. We hiked up the hill, much to the complaints of our legs and then back down and back to our condo. Lunch was next and then my aunt and uncle left to get some work done. Most everyone went to the second condo and we ate some more and babysat their two kids!

Then we walked to pond saw some ducks and other birds, and walked to the tennis courts, and played tennis again! The teams kinda switched up to make it fair as my little siblings and cousin decided to quit but it the end me and my mom won! Now we’re back inside and watching another game while writing this post! After supper we watched Paddington  Bear and had cobbler and ice cream!
