Within an hour of our time at Pacific City, we all climbed the big dune, including Gran.
We went clamming the next day when it was low tide and the skies were gray.
While drying out, we made up a very fun chase-my-line-in-the-sand game where one of us has 30 seconds to make as long as a line in the sand as possible by dragging a heel or a stick. When the 30 seconds are up, the rest of us start chasing the 'liner' along his line. The liner continues to drag and run to extend the inevitable of being caught up by the rest of us. We wore ourselves out chasing each other, each of us taking turns at being the 'liner. Next time we play, we might add a little game of line tag at the end!
We heard the warning of the horns and watched the fishing boats come onto shore at full speed.
We got cooled down before hitting the tide pools at the foot of the dune.
We transformed our clam catch into clam chowder.
We rented wet suits so we could boogie board.
