Grandma Susie went to Venice Beach with us this weekend. We went to Caspercan Beach and looked for sharks teeth. It was really hard to find them but we eventually found a bunch. The water was beautiful the first night but VERY rough the next day.
After the evening at the beach we came back to the hotel, swam and got cleaned up and went out to dinner. I ate 2 gigantic pancakes and eventually fell asleep. The next morning, I pounded down an entire HUGE waffle for breakfast and was ready to go again.
Our little collection.
We met a big groups of homeschoolers at the beach today. We played in the water, looked for creatures and explored a floating thing.
I stuck to the beach.
While the bigger kids played on what we learned with a bird nesting platform! OOPS! We were careful with it and returned it to its original spot when we were done.
I kept digging for fiddler crabs!
Mommy and I spotted a dolphin!
I finally caught a fiddler crab!!!
Today we went to a new homeschool group called “Marine Playgroup”. We meet once a month at a local beach or estuary and do research on marine life. Today we went to Sand Key Beach and caught all sorts of awesome animals. Mommy was really surprised how much I opened up and even talked to the instructor and other kids my age!
We caught shrimp.
A HUGE sea slug.

We dug around in the mangroves and caught a bunch of baby fish.
I was EXHAUSTED when we got home. Mommy washed the laundry and we were ready to go in the morning on another outdoors adventure. I did NOT want to get going the next day!
Mommy can’t figure me out lately. Whenever she wants to take a picture I make this crazy little face. She got a few decent pictures but most were the crazy face!
