We went to Torii Beach today. Actually this morning. We wanted to start our day off early before it got to hot for Chase. We were in the car and headed to the beach by 9 this morning. I think we were actually on the beach by 9:20. We went to another beach and its up the highway a bit. Torii Beach actually sits on an Army Post. What was nice about it was the beach itself, there was a food shack (though we didn't try), kayak rentals, and then a huge slide. The slide has 5 turns and lands in pool water. I believe it's 200 feet or so. The boys had a blast going down it, Joe included. He like to see how much water he can shoot over the sides with his speed. I have to say I got going pretty fast as well and flipped all the way over onto my belly on one of the turns.
Chase had a great time in the Ocean and hanging out on the beach. You should see all the photos I took. I took the rebel in a Ziploc bag and my telephoto lens. I took tons of photos, close up ones of Chaser's first time in the ocean, and nice wide angle ones to show the whole ocean behind him. I was so proud of this moment.
I came home to go through the pictures and realized I hadn't even inserted the memory card into the camera before we left. I took tons of photos with no memory card in the camera. I am so mad at myself. This was Chase's first time in the ocean and I missed it.
I guess there's always next time.
