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!
