to toast thanksgiving monday, and make the most of having cc's pa home for the day, we took a trip to the seaside. the highway was lined with thick trees, turning tawny and started to shed. a wooden sign took us off the wide tarmac down onto a narrow dirt track, then finally to an empty car park and the serene sea.
cc asked his pa to make trucks in the sand. then a collection of cars: 'no not a sand castle daddy. make a sand fire truck. an amble-ence. and a police car too.' so those two settled down together for some serious sandmobile making, while a tearful clement and I tugged seaweed from our toes.
