Pools… Beach style! #FriFotos

When I saw that today’s #FriFotos segment was focusing on pools, I thought – TIDAL POOLS! Being raised in coastal New England and now living here again with my Texan husband and kids, this type of “pool” has become an integral part of our family’s summer fun and a symbol for our lives.  They grow life, foster curiosity and change with every tide.

When I was a kid we spent every summer soaking up the sun (harvesting our winter supply of Vitamin D!) on the granite sand beaches of New Hampshire.  Tidal pools offered us an opportunity to find star fish, crabs, and krill during the day and a quiet place to reflect in the early evening.

Kind of like nature’s infinity pool!


Quiet and peaceful

You never know what you’ll find at the beach.

In like a lion, out like a lamb!  March is here and that means summer vacation is just around the corner.  Here is a photo of our kids just before we entered Jackson, WY last summer.  We visited Grand Teton National Park and then headed south to Crested Butte, CO.  Idyllic summer break.  Fresh air, big sky and endless outdoor adventures.  We’ll trek out west again this summer and we can’t wait!
