Swimming in the ocean during the Air Show

 

Hearing sea gulls in Berlin

 

Taking my kids to their first O’s game

 

Weekends with nothing but flip-flops

Apple slices and peanut butter

 

Finding a tiny conch shell on the beach
Eavesdropping on a crowded beach

 

Shrimp with anything

 

Different crab picking styles

 

A stiff breeze on a humid day
