Gorgeous October Day at the Beach

Today was one of those FABULOUS Seattle fall days. The weather was gorgeous, the sky was clear and we didn’t have anything planned, except cleaning the house. So after hearing someone talk about going walking on Alki I packed up the boys and we headed out. What a perfect day. Finley has been begging to go to the beach to play in the sand and fly a kite.

Looking back at Seattle.  Wish I had a better zoom.

As we were rounding the corner to come to the sandy side of Alki Finley exclaimed, ” oh no, we forgot the sand toys.” I remember the conversation before we left – I asked him multiple times to get his bucket and shovels and then I got distracted and we left. Now I am feeling bad. We left the house to go to the beach to dig and build castles and we forgot the tools. So I drove all the way to the end of the commercial area of Alki hoping that maybe I could find a store selling a pail (we had a shovel in the car). Finley is really upset at this point and I feel awful. So we head out and I think a cup will work. So we head to Starbuck’s and my morning latte and cup of water turn into the best Seattle sandtoys ever. We had tons of fun with them.
