The kids had a great time playing in the sand, playing in the water, playing with cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents.
My youngest was really enthralled by the one park ranger's talk that we got to hear. It was all about owls and the sounds they make. After we went on a nature walk, we passed the presentation area at just the right time. Even though it was kind of cold, Little K wanted to stay and listen, and she paid close attention to everything the ranger said, even going so far to raise her hand and answer a question (which surprised me!)
We spent a lot of time on the sand - of course it's never enough for the kids. They made sandcastles and dug with their cousins. The Boy had his uncle's help on the wall he was making.
And you just can't keep The Girl Who Swims out of the water.
The campsite had enough bushes and tree growth around it so we didn't feel like we were in someone else's business.
