We went to a new beach today. It was suppose to be family friendly, have great sand and be a fun place to boogy board.
Look at this postcard, it looks idyllic:
We received a few clues that the day was going to be a wild one when a Hawaiian boogy boarder screamed as a wave threw him into the air then the lifeguards came over the loud speaker reminding everyone that the current waters were unsafe for swimming, children and anyone inexperienced boogy boarding.
Checkout this photo I took of the bay and compare it to the postcard:
The boys stayed on the sand for the rest of the morning building a rescue boat and a command centre. They had a great time. I was the only one traumatized by the crazy surf!
