Anyway -- on to the beach, we drove down to 27th Ave. and drove on the beach, no way were we trying to carry stuff on with a toddler. Went about a mile north and parked. Low tide was at 2pm, so we were in good shape, since we knew we wouldn't stay much past lunch time. Delaney got so excited when she saw the water...since she'd never been to the beach, she kept saying "POOL!" and giggling. Once we got out of the car and got her suit on her, etc. we walked to the water. It was a little cold, but she walked right in -- no fear at all. We put our stuff up and dug a mini hole for her, she sat there and played 95% of the time we were at the beach! We played with her, then my mom and I would take turns going out into the water to cool off. We had filled Delaney's hole with water, so she was doing good. Sprinkled about 20 minutes after we got there, but we stayed put and it cleared up...the day was so gorgeous! Headed out around 12pm, stopped at the same BK's and had lunch (unless we went to McD's or a local place we would have had to go out of the way, and it had been a while since I went to a local place) then got home around 3:30pm I think. All in all it was a great day -- we took loads of pics!
Went straight into the water...she loved it! Gorgeous Atlantic Ocean, as always!

Hopefully we'll be planning more beach ventures in the near future!
