This weekend we took Leila up to Cape Ann for her first beach experience!
The beach and the weather were amazing, lending perfect light for photographing my baby girl’s beach day.
We left our apartment in Watertown before 8:00 and after stopping at shaws for some bottles of water we drove up to Wingaersheek beach, arriving there at 9:00. I love getting to these beach early in the morning because there is a sand bar that goes way out into the little bay. I like to walk out to the end of it where the waves roll in from two directions. It’s the most relaxing experience besides a 90 minute massage! When I was pregnant with Leila I went to Wingaersheek a few times to shed off some of the pregnancy stress and it was extremely therapeutic!
I packed fruit salad and sandwiches that we finished off by 11:00. Leila munched on bits of our sandwiches and drank the lemonade I made the day before. We sat on our bright beach towels while Leila explored the sand by squeezing it through her tiny hands. We gave her a bucket and shovel which she mostly just tried to chew on. She loved running around on the hard-packed sand trying to get the attention of the older kids.
Mazen flew a kite for Leila’s benefit but it was slightly hard to get her to look way up at it. It flew so high!
We had a great day!! Can’t wait to do it again!!
