After dinner Kate said she wanted to go to the park, and I just happened to recall one on the other side of the marina so we headed over there so she could play for a while. Wouldn't you know it, the playground had sand instead of mulch? For most kids that would be no big deal, but for Kate that meant every time she got sand in her shoe Daddy had to take it off and clean it. We didn't play long and walked out onto a fishing pier to watch the ferries cross a few times and even saw some dolphins playing in the bay.

Vacation Day 2: Beach Combing
The tiny little coquina clam shells we were finding at the beach where we swam and played yesterday just weren't cutting it for me. Of course Kate thought they were perfect, and I'll admit that although tiny they're cute and quite colorful, but I wanted her to have some real shells, some bigger than my fingertips. I remembered this great spot we found years ago in Port Aransas that netted a pretty good shell haul back when I visited there with my dear friends James and Angy, so we headed over to Port A yesterday evening for some beach combing and then dinner.
