I admit we rarely go to the beach. I don't really like to when it's super hot and Sean doesn't like sand so I guess that's why we are never there! Ryan loves it there, though, so we need to make more of an effort. Actually we agreed that in February it is quite pleasant to be there! Any way, our family friend Linda stayed a couple of nights with us and we met her at Frenchy's and decided to go early so Ryan could play.
