In a bid to "take things easy" we spent day two at a beach called "Lover's Key". We left home by 11am and arrived in the park around 12:30 armed with sandwiches and snacks. Fortunately my friend noticed we had left Charlotte's shoes at home and her parents who hadn't left yet were able to collect them because this key is well known for it's shells -
Walking on this beach requires sandals because there are parts so densely covered in shells one can't help but crush them while walking.
It sure is nice to have more eyes on Charlotte, as you all know I spend many weekends taking Charlotte to the beach by myself so I'm the first to cheer about eating without interruption and support during the inevitable meltdown resulting from too much fun and sun!
We left the park at 5:30pm and it took 2 hours to get back with all the traffic. Unfortunately we also had to drive back home this night because husband works on Saturday's so it was a quick pack and leave by 8pm! We still stopped at Mimi's restaurant for dinner because I was promised a stop at my favorite French/New Orleans restaurant and got home by 11:30pm!
Busy two days but it was a wonderful break.
