Homer Sea Week: Round 2

Homer Sea Week is a biennial tradition our kids’ school, and this was our family’s second time participating.

Two years ago the kids were in 1st and 3rd grades and we stalked them most every minute.  (Flashback post can be found here.)

Now they are two years older – 3rd and 5th grade – so we let them roam the beach more independently, but we weren’t above spying and eavesdropping as necessary.

Luckily they aren’t too embarrassed of their dorky parents yet, and we took some nice family walks along the beach.

We saved starfish, counted crabs and observed anemones on Bishop’s Beach.  There was plenty of good bird watching as well, from eagles to crows and LBJ’s.

This year we rented an RV, which was waaaay more fun and shockingly more affordable than the hotel.

Tess loved romping on the beach, lounging by the RV, and (for some reason) eating barnacles…

I can’t think of a better way to spend Mother’s Day… Homer is a special place!IMG_0210
