We did a 3.2 mile loop on Assateague called the Wildlife Loop. It was pretty hot, even though we started before 8 am. There wasn't a ton of shade, and I kind of wished we had done the Woodland Trail instead (I had run it a couple of days prior, and it had more shade).
Paul liked getting out in the waves with his body board. We've had this thing since we were just married and lived an hour from Galveston, in Houston. We used to take the dogs to Galveston on weekends, and bought the body board then. The waves there weren't much, but the waves on Assateague were perfect for it.
Look who FINALLY warmed up to the water:
And look who didn't. Well, maybe next time Reid will feel more comfortable. And he did have a great time playing in the sand.
As for this kid - he just couldn't get enough. I'm not sure I've ever seen Pierce so joyful as he was playing in the waves, and driving his truck on the sand. Seeing his enthusiasm made every moment at the beach so memorable. I could've watched him rolling in the waves all day.
