On the Beach (Part 2)

Never a notably docile sleeper, Miles reacted to the weekend getaway with a bravura performance of insomnia that left us suitably dazzled.

To offer his mom at least an hour of potential sleep, Miles and I took a walk through the woods early the next morning.

Fortunately, it was another beautiful day to be out and about in the Northwest.

Miles met up with some friendly local horses.

The front range of the snowy Olympics loomed on the horizon.

Our friends Allie and Aly arrived for a visit.

Miles enjoyed a nap in the cabin while his parents enjoyed it on the beach.

This time, we were smart enough to do our kayaking at high tide...

...and avoided the mudflats at low tide.

Miles combed the beach for oysters...

...and practiced his dance moves on the grass.

He took time out for a swing...

... and a little lounging around.

His curiousity knew no bounds.

But he could be momentarily distracted.

Once again, we dined on the bounty of the beach.

And watched the sun set over tranquil waters.
