Our summer landmark

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

When our family decided to take a vacation together, we found a place for rent along the Gulf of Mexico, about a three hour drive from our home. My little grandchildren were especially looking forward to enjoying the swimming pool and beachcombing along the shore.

We followed the directions and found our condo, set back from the beach, which was accessible by a pretty boardwalk bridge. The children and I changed into bathing suits right away and climbed across the boardwalk and down onto wonderful soft sand. We kicked off our shoes and raced down to play in the gentle waves and then wandered back and forth looking for seashells. The children soon filled their little buckets with all sorts of things found along the tide line.

We'd love to hear from you!
