A weekend at the Gulf Coast - Part II

Initially I had planned on making this post part of the one I wrote earlier this week, but since it was becoming much longer than expected, I decided on two separate posts.

We spent the cold but bright and sunny afternoon down by the beach. First, we walked along the granite pier, holding the hands of the two youngest so they didn't fall through the cracks...

...and watched a fisherman make his way to edge of it to wait on the biting fish.

We encountered birds nearby...

The children loved collecting sea shells, baby jellyfish, and playing the sand.
