We took another hike to the beach and saw Ella's bunny from the boardwalk. She calls him and the turtle each time they walk over to the beach! It is very cute!
Bill and Caleb were able to do 50-60' body surf rides on the waves-the water was warm and no undertows to mess with your safety! It was beautiful.
I was determined to find a shark tooth! Caleb finds one within seconds, and then Cassandra does. I will say in my defense, trying to see a 3/8" little tooth in this kind of beach detritus is hard and complicated by my glasses!
And against all odds, I found one! What a thrill! It is tiny but it is my first shark's tooth ! See me smile!
We packed it up to head for home-Ella had a snack-it is chocolate Nutella.
She does it proud.
And she did not appreciate my picture interruption! This is pure Ella here!
This stalk is about 25' tall! It is an incredible sight. It only happens after the plant is 15-20 years old and it will then die. It is commonly called a century plant people claiming it only bloomed after 100 years but that isn't quite right; it should be called the suicide plant because after it blooms, the main plant dies!
and it is growing new ones up here, too! Read the cool article here about them.
Thank you for the sweet visit, dear family!
