The kids and I decided to stop by the beach on the way home from lunch at our favorite pizza place. I’m still getting used to being able to say that we “stop by the beach.” Before we moved, it was at least a four hour car ride to the ocean. Now we can ride bikes, skateboards, or even walk to the beach. We walked by these dunes today after we parked our bikes. The dunes are roped to keep people off them to help prevent erosion.
