One of the funnest things to do here in Broomes Island is kayak. It's such an equal opportunity activity; everyone - young, old, fit, or couch potato - can enjoy puttering around in a kayak.
On the other side of the river from us, about half a mile away, is Glass Beach. So named by Ella and Aunt Sally because sea glass tends to wash up on it. Ella has a nice glass and shell collection from our last trip here, and she's gathering more and planning craft projects.
We made the trip over on Tuesday morning (or was it afternoon? I love being on vacation because it doesn't matter!) and found quite a bit more.
If you look closely, you can see that Hank's kayak is tethered to mine. He's a pretty good paddler, but I feel better knowing he's not going to drift off to sea...well, not unless I do, too.
On days like this I can totally envision us living on a island and paddling or boating to get places. Then I remember that it gets really cold in the winter and having to boat through a storm for a gallon of milk isn't so appealing afterall.
But we're very happy to enjoy it while we can!
