My little family...The Q's first encounter with the great ocean interface.
She was a little unsteady on the sand, at first, but you can see by the smile on her lovely face how she felt about it.
Daddy wrote her name in the sand - another first.
Barefoot and fearless, into the chilly surf.
Delighted with her first experience with salt water.
Historic boats tethered to the pier.
A confident gull.
From another era of seafaring.
Clinging to Mama's leg, while greeting strangers on the dock.
