We are starting to take advantage of our state parks pass already. With our failed trip to the aquarium under our belt we took a trip to Two Lights state park to see some tide pools. We didn't find much this trip except tourists getting insanely close to the water (think extremely rocky and big waves) with flip flops, toddler and dog in tow. We were taking bets as to who was going to have to rescue them. Eliot got an earful about water safety.
On a more relaxing note it is beautiful to sit and watch the waves go in and out into the tide pools with the rhythm of the tide.
Ice cream is always the best way to end an afternoon exploring the seaside.
