Summer is coming soon

This weekend was superb for all things outdoors, with sunshine and moderate heat, so we milked it! Lake, tennis, playground, one of the lowest tides on the beach, picnics, walks and grilled dinners! Amalia asked "Is it still Spring?" I think she senses the changes in the air.

 Amalia airborne!

We found many interesting things at low tide, including large moon snails, jelly fish, sea cucumbers, crabs and a lot a different seaweeds. But most impressive for me was this nest of herring eggs attached to a piece of floating seaweed, although I have to admit my first thought was about sushi.

Summer is in the air

Yesterday we had one of the first full blown Summer days, and we celebrated by enjoying the lake nearby. In a silly move I applied sunscreen all over myself and Amalia before we left home, but missed a spot on my back which got painfully sunburned... I now have a red stripe on the back of my neck.
