So we spent all the sunny days on the beach, mostly in the first week we were there when Mike and Leesee were with us. Ollie got his skimming prowess from last summer back and Minna gave it a great try. She was more into the boogie board though, and towards the end of our stay, seriously got into diving in the waves at Washing Pond. During the week, swimming was led by Minna who never seemed to get cold, beachcombing involved everyone and there was lots of playtime where Leesee was the favorite playmate. The big hit was her wax animals, made from the leftover coating around the round cheeses we brought to the beach for lunch. What a treat to have everyone together at Washing Pond, not the Dionis of old, but very similar and less crowded. We also spent a cold and breezy day at Miacomet, where the pond looks very different but was still great for skim boarding and a Minna swim. See it here.
