Sometimes the laundry is piled up, the to-do list is endless, and life feels a little heavy. Sometimes you ask God to take a little bit of that burden from you…and He gives you big surf. So you pack up the kids to go watch the surf, because a beach full of onlookers and an ocean spotted with surfers are just the perfect thing to help ignore the laundry, to-do list, and heaviness.
What a perfect morning! So much joy in chasing the seagulls, kicking sand around, and listening to the waves crash. I love how the beach looks different in the winter. There’s probably something scientific to it with tides and pulls and all that; but the shorter beach, steeper berm, and muted colors are so different than summer, and so perfect in its own way. <3
Photo sessions at the beach aren’t just for summertime! In fact, I highly recommend late winter and springtime sessions at the beach because it’s less crowded and the lighting can be just right!
To convince Jake to follow with us back to the car as we were leaving, I promised him we’d come back again this week. Ooops. Looks like we’ll be finding time later this week to go back to the beach!
