They completed a huge water quality protection project at the beach this summer and it looks dramtically different. When I pulled up the first time, I couldn't really comprehend the change. I only thought, "Hmmm, something looks different." Now the water from the parking lot drains into this large rain garden.
Mike took us to the beach today which is why I was able to bring the camera too.
Did I ever explain about these yogurt cups? When we had the pool party for Christiana's birthday, the favorite toy was a plastic cup with holes in the bottom that had contained a potted plant. I started collecting our yogurt containers and used a wood burning tool to poke holes in the bottom. We have quite a collection now. I also bring a few without holes to carry water to rinse off Amanda's feet at the car. Once when I told Tony to save the container for a pool toy he said, "What are we poor or something?!" Obviously not, because look at all the yogurt we buy. :)
We know these 80 degree days aren't going to last so we're making the most of them. Mike was reading the forecast and Monday was supposed to have a high of 80 and then the rest of the week was only going to get to 60. Eeek! Am I ready for that? No way!
