Went On Vacation




We spent the weekend at the Beach. Had a wonderful time. We left on Friday night and arrived at our motel late . The next morning we woke up early and walked across the street to the beach. There had been a minus tide, which essentially means some great beach findings and tide pools.My son found an agate and some great little shells. We also discovered some really nice tide pools in the rocks, we saw 3 or 4 starfish and a few sea urchins too.






After enjoying the morning at the Beach, we grabbed some coffee and headed of for the Science Museum and Aquarium. We saw some really neat Shrimp, Lobsters & Crabs that I didn't even know existed. For instance, a Japanese Spider Crab


For Lunch, we visited a historical area and found a great little spot called The Chowder Bowl. My husband & daughter enjoyed, scallops ,fish & chips and a bowl of clam chowder. I am not seafood lover and my son isn't either, so I had a very tasty croissant sandwich & my son enjoyed chicken fillets. On our way back to the motel we stopped at a bay side town and found the greatest candy shop. We bought Salt Water Taffy,in a variety of flavors, and Fresh Warm Carmel Corn, it was delicious and the whole store was filled with the scent of fresh Carmel.

On Sunday Morning we woke up to wind & rain, so we decided to visit the ocean after breakfast. I saw the cutest place ever on the way to our motel. The name? PIG N Pancake, I knew I had to go. Even if it didn't have the greatest food, it would be great to Scrapbook. The kids & i loved our pancakes, but the experience wasn't that enjoyable for my husband. While we were there, I had fun shopping in the little gift shop. I bought, Pig N Pancake socks, a Frisbee, a ornament, a shirt and a coffee mug. Was so fun. Has the greatest little story behind it too, will be a fun one to Scrapbook.
Promise I will post more tomorrow. Hope you all had a wonderful Weekend!
