out on the boat

We thought last night was magical with the sand dunes and the sunset on the ocean and the seals just a few feet from us in the water, but today? Today gives last night some heavy competition.

Both were amazing just in completely different ways.

We woke up early for a morning boat trip from Orleans to Chatham. Growing up we would go out on my uncles boat in Gloucester all the time, and today just reminded me of how much I miss and love being out on the ocean water and how freeing it feels to be there.

We made our way over to the sand bars so we could watch hundreds of seals up close and I have to say it was breathtaking. This has been something I have wanted to do for a long time now and I'm so glad we had this opportunity.

And although the girls are much too young to really understand and appreciate the beauty of it all right now I am still so grateful that we can give them these memories and life experiences.
