After getting settled we headed for the beach and relished the cool breezes and refreshing water. The girls headed into the surf right away, and after a few times of getting pounded by the waves and saltwater up their nose, they quickly became more comfortable being in the ocean. The beach was huge (3 miles long), wide and almost empty. Pretty shells and coral soon filled our pockets, and the body ...
... up and headed poolside to wait for our pick up at 10:00 for the surprise excursion. Christine thought we should go sit on the beach for a while since this is where the excursion would begin.
