The beach!

Last time we were in Brazil, L knew about five words and most of them were "BEETS!" (aka "beach"). This year the tradition continues. We're staying with my SIL and her family, and today they wanted to go to a rocky beach, which sounded fine in theory but turned out to be way above L's paygrade. So we left them there and headed back to the sandy beach near the house, which my SIL's boys had deemed passé, because they'd been there the day before. But for me and L and a bag of sand toys, it proved perfect. We dug holes and filled them again. We buried toys and ourselves. We talked about the dogs, surfers, and ATV riders we saw passing. It got warm enough--though it's mid-winter here--to bask in the sun. L was even willing to walk most of the way there and most of the way back, a small miracle as he wavers between immovable stubborn independence and desperate gibbon-like clinging. Between [personal profile] bell and I, we even got most of the sand off him. Most, not all; we've told him if anyone ever asks him, he's to say that Anakin was right about sand. It was a beautiful morning.

now with picture! I hope? )
