We are soaking up the sun in the Bahamas right now, and as much as I love my Portland coffee I wouldn't trade our time at the beach for anything. Kellan is absolutely in love with the ocean and it takes tons of coaxing to get him out of the water.
What's fun about the beach is all the new things to collect. Kellan insists on wearing shorts with pockets so he has a place to put all of his shells, rocks and other discoveries. I had to convince him that a quarter of a crab shell probably wasn't the best thing to carry around.
This is the third time we have taken Kellan to the Bahamas. We stay in the Abacos for a very low-key vacation that involves nothing more than enjoying the beach and going on short excursions around the islands. I always plan on reading a couple of books and eating lots of fresh fish. Speaking of food, Kellan has tried eating a few bites of steak and grouper so maybe foods look more appetizing when he's on vacation!
