Jake and I went for a walk on the beach today. For all of the 12 years of his life, we have ventured to the beach year round to look for interesting shells, rocks, and beach glass. He can't resist turning over rocks to catch tiny shore crabs, and this time we saw some birds that were new to us.
Afterwards, we warmed ourselves up with a hot drink at Starbucks and puttered around through the shops in town.
"I LOVE days like this with you," he sighed.
