Friday July 13 was probably my favorite day of the trip. How do you top NYC was my initial thought, but spending a day at the beach, with the ocean waves was magical. There was no amusing the kids, no keeping them close, it was perfect, everyone was content the entire day.The kids have never been to the ocean and didn’t know what to make of the salty taste to the water. Eventually they got used to it and everyone had a great time. Hallie didn’t care for the waves AT ALL, and spent her time in the sand. We had sand everywhere and sea weed was falling out of our swimsuits but it was all worth it. Next time I will be renting a beach house and we will spend more than one day at the ocean. The beach we went to was called Avon by the Sea.
