Last Summer Day on the Beach

Robert Moses State Park: Fire Island

Hi everyone! Summer is coming to an end, but my family decided to go to the beach one last time.  We drove out to Robert Moses State Park on Fire Island.  To get there, you take a causeway, which is a series of bridges over the bay! It was really cool.

I have a really cute sand mold that makes sea turtles! I had so much fun visiting the sea turtles in Costa Rica in 2014, so I made a whole crew of them. You can see them very well in this photo, but you they are the little ball-shaped shapes in front of me.

As the sun got lower in the sky, I took off my sunglasses and took my bucket to collect shells. There are so many beautiful shells on the beach! I think the scallop shells have a pretty shape, but I love the purple color of clamshells.

Just before my family left to drive back to New York City, I made a sandcastle using my shell bucket. It's fun figuring out just the right mix of sand and water to make the perfect castle.

Before long, it was time to head back home.  I put on my sunglasses and looked around, memorizing how the beach looked.  Sometimes we go to a more local beach in the fall and winter to take walks, but this would be the last summery visit until next year.  Goodbye beach!

Do you have any activities that you only do in the summer?
