We headed to the beach for another fun day. Today's beach surprise was baby jellyfish! They were all over the water and you could just barely see the pinkish tan outlines of their bodies. They didn't sting so after a while we started collecting them. If that wasn't fun enough the kids made friends with some other folks on the beach - Will with a man next to us who was catching small fish and suddenly we had a few of our own, and Katie with some older girls who were building a "drizzle sand castle" and asked Katie if she wanted to help. While we often see Will make friends with strangers, it was fun to see Katie do this as well. She used to be shy and may not have done this a year ago, but she is now 3.5 and not nearly as shy as she used to be.
