A trip to the beach

DSC_0718An errand run to a town about an hour away ended with a spontaneous trip to the beach, our first in this season. It was the hour before sunset – my favorite time of the day, when the light is so lovely and the colors mellow.


We happened to have just the two little ones with us, which also made this Hadassah’s first time at the beach (many more are to follow, I hope!). Of course, she spent most of the time napping in the baby carrier, but she seemed to be enjoying herself all the same.

Israel, on the other hand, had a blast… Here is one (of many) photos of him splashing about, or just sitting and letting the waves wash over him. I had to make a conscious effort to stop taking pictures and just enjoy the moment… A moment that can never be perfectly captured, and is meant to be savored in the here and now.

The magical hour ended with the sun sinking into the sea, something I will never tire of watching. It was beautiful, and then the day was truly over and it was time to go home. I hope we can do this again soon.
