There are THREE photos from this beach because I found such pretty things I wanted to focus on their details.

My husband and son helped my daughter into her wetsuit, which is quite the athletic process and involved a lot of screeching and complaints. It was an old suit we had borrowed for the afternoon, and was awfully stiff and rather too big for her. The water was quite cold (it usually is, up here) and apparently it seeped in through the gaps and chilled her quickly. They snorkeled for about ten minutes before she struggled out of the water declaring that she hates diving and is never going back in the water again. I think we need a better-fitting and more flexible suit. Why do my children's favorite sports require expensive equipment that has to fit well? Why can't they just play tag? At any rate, we're looking for a 7 mil wetsuit for a 10 year old girl, if anyone's got one hanging around.
