A day at the beaches....

Sunday morning started out just as early as Saturday morning, we headed down Chuckunut drive to Larabee State Park to see if we could find more purple star fish! We found a few, not as many as a couple weeks ago. The one above needed a rescue mission, so Kim rescued it and gave it a home in the water.

Next stop was Abby Tea Garden, such a sweet place :) We enjoyed tea sandwiches, scones and desserts!
We made time for a little more shopping, then headed north to Birch Bay. On the way we made stops at Zuanich Point,  Squalicum Beach, and Marine Drive Park. After Birch Bay we headed to Semiamoo and the spit in search of more sea critters, hoping to find sand dollars!

We found sand dollars everywhere, and were so busy in the sand picking them up, we didn't notice the tide moving up and the next thing we knew we were on a 5 foot sand bar with water all around us! It was so fun, the water was really warm, I wore flip flops so not a problem for me to get to shore, Becky and Kim were wearing shoes that had to be quickly pulled off, but we made it to shore safely. Then it was off for more shopping in Bellingham, Kohls and Trader Joes. When we finally made it home after 7:00 we had a yummy salmon, asparagus and couscous dinner. After dinner, it was time to plan their next visit in August with all their families joining them. Should be lots of fun, our kids are coming also! :) Thank you for visiting me, it was alot of fun girls!

Thanks for stopping by.....
