How lucky are we?

June 20, 2009

I remember back in 1994, I was lucky enough to travel to Germany & the Netherlands and got to go visit my “sister”, Bettina, an exchange student from Berlin who had lived with my parents and me in 1989-90, the year the Berlin Wall fell.  My friend Karen & I met a guy on the train along the way from Iowa, who had NEVER SET FOOT IN THE OCEAN (Other than flying over it, he’d never seen it!!)

I’ve never forgotten that.  Imagine never being in the Ocean!

Aren’t we lucky, that Alex got to go the beach for the day with school on Friday, just because it was a close, easy & inexpensive trip.  Here are some photos – don’t you wish you could have been there too?  I do!  (However, I was having an equally wonderful time at Sarah & Neil’s preschool concert while Ginna was the lucky one who got to chaperone!)

Happy to be spending the day at the beach
