Outdoor Challenge Monday {Seaweed Soup}

May 31, 2010

The highlight of all of last week’s adventures was a morning spent together at the most amazing local beach. A small, hidden beach, tucked away in a back corner of a local park. Just a crescent of sand, cradled by looming outcrops of New England granite and shaded by the overhanging branches of a massive oak. This little cove, with it’s gentle lapping waves and sun-warmed water, has been our new favorite destination, and we’ve spent three mornings there over the past week.

On this particular morning we got there bright and early, and had the beach to ourselves for nearly two hours before anyone else arrived.

We gathered shells and driftwood, collected wave-worn rocks, discovered sea glass and crab shells, and explored the heaps of seaweed left behind to dry at the high-tide line.

What would this little boy do with a bucket of sea water, several handfuls of semi-dried seaweed, some shells and rocks and other miscellaneous beach finds? Why, make seaweed soup, of course!

    How beautiful! What a treasured little getaway – it seems far removed from any hustle. I don’t blame you for being frequent guests!

    Sounds like you have found a wonderful place for nature play! We have trouble finding natural goodies washed up on our beaches (versus trash!), so I long for days spent exploring the shore somewhere other than Los Angeles! 🙂
