Our Beach Trip


video
We went to Pine Point Beach with the whole first grade. We went beach combing and we found shells, crab legs, driftwood, a whole crab, lots of different seaweed, and feathers. Natasha became an expert at finding razor clams, and Dakota became an expert at finding whole sand dollars. We saw barnacles on the rocks, rocks, seagulls, someone fishing, big waves and small waves, and the tide line. The tide was going out and we learned how to tell that. Alanna made a sand castle with drips. Jase, Hunter, and Daniel wrote their names in the sand. Laney, Brooke and Emma wrote in the sand and drew pictures in the sand. We dug tunnels and made the water go into different places. We dug big, deep, holes too. We went wading up to our ankles. The water was a lot warmer than we expected. It was an awesome day!

It does sound like an awesome day! Can you tell the rest of us how to tell if the tide is going out?

What a nice reminder of trips to the beach when I was much younger.

Look at the tide line. If the ocean is going toward the tide line, the tide is coming in. If the ocean is leaving more wet sand each time, the tide is going out.
Thank you for reading our blog and leaving us comments!

I love going to the beach!! Watching this video makes me want to go to the beach right now even though its like a gross day out. Usually I go camping once a year at Popham Beach for a week and it is so fun! We literally wake up, eat breakfast, and spend the whole entire day on the ocean. Then we go back, shower, eat dinner and then have a campfire on the ocean and do the same thing over again for seven days. It is SO fun!!
