More Cape Cod Weekend
Sunday was our last day on Cape Cod. I was so tired from my busy Saturday that I slept in! I was frustrated that I missed out on another hour of Cape Cod fun. Stinkbugs! I told Ice Bat not to let me sleep late anymore, unless I'm at home and have to do chores.
We rode bikes to the beach again- and the weather was great! It was high tide, so I had to stay out of the water until the waves receded just a little bit. I didn't want to get sucked in the undertow.
Instead of swimming, I decided to try testing out a myth from one of my favorite episodes of Mythbusters. In the myth, mean pirates bury you up to your neck in the sand and leave you to drown as the tide comes in! I got too scared to go above my knees; now I know why Adam and Jamie tell you not to try anything they do.
After that, I finally got to try out my boogie board! It was awesome! I felt like a dolphin riding on the waves. I pretended I was a shark chasing the other swimmers. Chomp!
Then I decided to build a fort. I wanted to see if I could stop the tide from touching my stuff. It was a huge fort. It took me so long to build, because I didn't have any tools at all. That made me decide to play Cave Inky. I pretended I lived so long ago that humans didn't have any tools yet.
When I was done being Cave Inky, I built a sand tower. Then I smushed it! Awesome!
After that, it was time to go home. I really wanted to stay and live on the beach! We rode the bikes down the hill and went super fast! Then it was time for the long, long, long drive home to New York. There were so many cars who also wanted to go home!
And that was my weekend. It was awesome! I can't wait to take Violet!
