On Sunday we went to Nahant beach. We never made it down the shore last summer, so this was actually Noah's first time at the ocean. He was interested, but skeptical about how cool the water was.
We informed him that it doesn't get any better than this in New England, kid, so get used to it.
Luckily there was plenty of sand to play in.
We have lots of pictures of him sitting and playing in the sand, but the majority of the time he actually ran around on the sand, saying "run run run" to himself and cracking up. It was very cute. I think it will be considerably less cute when he gets big enough that I actually have to run to keep up with him...
Eventually we got him to sit still for long enough to eat a sandwich. Exciting times.
Overall, a beautiful day. We thought Nahant beach was a great choice - it's 30 minutes from Boston and definitely toddler friendly.
