We’re fortunate to live about 20 minutes from the nearest beach – McNears Beach in San Rafael.
A couple weekends ago, we decided to take a ride and check it out. We thought we’d just go see the beach and maybe sit in the sand for a bit so we brought some beach toys and a towel. Big mistake. Once Avery made it to the water, nothing was going to stop her from going in as far as she could (and sometimes a bit beyond that). We were lucky to have a spare outfit on hand, so we did a quick wardrobe change and turned her loose. She spent the day throwing rocks, playing in the sand, and shouting “Swimming!” to everyone who walked by.
