Cove Island

Yesterday  Matt had a work retreat in Stamford, Connecticut and we tagged along. He went his way to go and bond with his co-workers while Grey, Roe and I hit the beach.

They had a small aquarium there and the nicest youth tour guide talked to us about all of the life that the area supports. He asked us about the natural inhabitants of the Great Salt Lake and we told him that only seagulls and brine shrimp live there, it's too salty and smells like a toilet. He was as interested in that as we were in all of the cool animals that live in the marshes near the beach.

The water was cold, but the kids had a bag of new sand toys and I had my floppy hat and Kindle, so we just relaxed and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean.




At one point, about 20 sailboats were on the water, all getting lessons and we watched them with awe.  It was just so peaceful and amazing to be at the beach. No wonder people pay so much money to live on the waterfront, it's the closest thing to heaven that I can imagine.

We were sad when it was time to go home, but we were also really tired.

I ordered pizza and we spent the evening chasing fireflies and washing the grit out of our swimsuits before sleep consumed out salty, sandy souls.
