Day 2.177: Beach tidings
Exile #2 took everyone else to enjoy some pool time with Albaniana and family today. I was at work of course so here are some more pictures from our Independence Day beach trip to tide us over. Talking of tides, this hilltop-lake's beach may be tide-free, but there were pretty good waves when we were first there thanks to a speedboat towing tubers up and down the lake. It's quite amazing how an activity so far away out in the middle of a large body of water affects things at the shore. I resisted the temptation to try explain the physics of tsunamis to the kids and instead settled for discussing whether lining the bottom of Exile #3's moat with pebbles would help to hold the water in for longer.
