Little fishes

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 7:25 am

Now that the family has arrived and is settling in, the girls are enjoying exploring their new diggs.  They are in love with the view of the sea from our new apartment.  The first thing they wanted to do yesterday was change into bathing suits and go swim in the ocean.  Of course, that was an easy sell for me, so off we went.  Although Dandellion went back and forth between ‘just getting my feet wet’ and ‘jumping in’, she eventually decided to go all the way.  Because both girls are new at swimming in these conditions, they had to learn that it is actually easier to stay away from the rocks.  Because they are used to swimming in pools, they gravitate to the edge for safety.  That doesn’t tend to work out to well when there are waves and a rocky shore.  Fortunately, everyone had a great time, and we will probably go back there this afternoon.

  1. I’m so happy everyone has arrived safely and the exploring has begun! It sounds like you found a great apartment.

  2. Did she really say “just getting my feet wet”?
    So cute! I bet they are thrilled that their swimming season has been extended:)

  3. I would have loved to be there to see them. Did Mary Ann go in with you or was she a spectator? I have never seen her actually get in the ocean. Of course, having adult supervision on the shore line watching for trouble is a good idea.

  4. The adult supervision was unpacking I’m afraid. Star did mention our trip to that same location with the inflatable boat though.
