HORSESHOE BAY BEACH

 

Coming around the corner along the path is the opening to Horseshoe.

I absolutely loved the sand around this area away from the beach. It reminded me of sand dunes

 

 

This would be considered the "non-crowded" section of the beach. Yes, there were a few people wondering around, but plenty of space to spread out and enjoy yourself.

We ALL started heading toward the "Baby Bay" area where we spent most of our time when we were here in June.

 

Notice Brayden in the picture? Of course you don't...he's not in the next several pictures...You better believe Sakari is with us! 

At this point I'm frustrated that Kendra is still walking toward Baby Bay and I screamed to her "You might want to stop and find your son!" She turned around to look and finally noticed he was gone. I knew exactly where he was because I had been keeping my eye on him. He was still ALL THE WAY BACK AT THE BEGINNING of the beach! ...where he was busy playing in the sand and running back and forth. She started screaming for him to come on. He played like he didn't hear her and this is normal for him. I don't know what makes her think that she's going to walk away and he's just going to follow her. He will never follow her and the split second you're not looking, he takes the opportunity to wonder off.

 

Since he was acting as if he didn't hear her, this now forced her to walk all the way back down the beach to get him. HAHAHAHAHA...that's what you get! Anyone who's been to Horseshoe Beach knows it's not the smallest beach to begin with and quite the haul to get from one end to the other...especially carrying beach bags and towels.

 

The kids decided they were going to go exploring while some of us decided to locate what ever remains of beach front real estate we could find at Baby Bay.

 

Up the rocks they went for the spectacular view that I got when I was here a few months ago. Since I had already done it, I knew I was not going to go up this time around. I was going to sit back and relax on the beach and watch them emerge up at the top.

Kendra finally drug Brayden down the beach and dumped him at our beach-front property and headed off to catch up with her brothers. She finally made it up there as well.

Kendra was up there doing all kinds of hand signals down to me and Courtney joined in at some point. They acted as if I knew what they were talking about. They did it over and over and then would turn to each other and laugh then continue with the charades. I would later find that they were trying to tell me there were turtles on the other side...only to find out they were kidding and were trying to entice me to climb up there. But since I suck at charades, I didn't move and they didn't accomplish their goal.

I told the kids to take lots of pictures for me when they were up there and this is what they brought me back...

 

Kenny standing someplace that looked like he probably shouldn't be standing at...too close to the edge.

The girls come back complaining about how the boys were scaring them by getting so close to the edges. Michelle said she was about to have heart failure because of Kenny and I'm glad I didn't go up there. They would have for sure had to carry me down and call the squad.

Monkey see, monkey do. Kolin joined in on the fun just to get Courtney going as well. They totally convinced them they were going to jump into the water.

Since they didn't jump, they decided to climb down there. I didn't even realize you could find a place to do that. But, of course my boys did.

After their adventures, they all headed down to me to let me know how bad the boys were and I breathed a sigh of relief that they had all safely made it back and none of them decided to jump.

We hung out the rest of the time at "Baby Bay".
