Eliza Grace was born on March 15, 2006, at 26 weeks, 4 days, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces and measuring just 11.5 inches long. She is the light of my soul and this is the story of our life in the big city.

Wave Runner

Eliza is a bit spoiled when it comes to sun and surf, since most of it has been in the Caribbean,  Even though Saba's beach is rocky (but we now have a nice white sand beach!  WooHoo!), the water is 85 degrees, instead of the 65 degrees that we have in New York.  But since the weather was almost 100 degrees, off to the beach we headed.

We got up early and were some of the first on the beach. The main benefit of this was getting a parking spot near the beach, thereby cutting down on the time one must act like a Sherpa.  It is amazing what 4 kids and 4 adults need just to hang out at the beach for a few hours.

Eliza was not daunted by the surf (nor was her dino) and she enjoyed running into (and away from) the waves.

And she was quite stylish in her one-shouldered one-piece:

This was one of the first beaches at which my Dad taught me to swim and I am sure he would have been delighted to see Eliza do her "shark dives" into the waves :)

Only 18 more days to the 85 degree water!

You'd never know that the water was cold--Eliza looks like she had a great time!

Wow.... look at all those people. I especially love the guy who is filming his kids. I bet the beaches in Sabo aren't nearly as crowded. Great to see videos of Eliza. I cannot believe how big she's getting. And she definitely has no fear of the water. Fantastic.

Just want to say that, once again, Miss E. is quite the fashion plate. Seriously, will you take me shopping?

Is the new sandy beach courtesy of a hurricane?

Anne, Eliza Grace's mom said...

Jo, the new sand is courtesy of a few barges full from St. Maarten and some really good dredging and a stone breakwater at the Cove Bay, which was formerly a rocky black sand beach. Our nice black sand wandering beach at Wells Bay still comes and goes :)
