A few days a week I like to take the kids over to a beach park about a block from Anne's school. Today instead of just playing we decided to take a walk down the beach to look for sea shells. Instead of sea shells we found something much larger. There just basking in the sun was a monk seal! The kids loved it - Anne thought it might be dead because it wasn't moving but shortly after we found it it wiggled a bit and she was relieved. You are right Mollie, there are some things I will miss about Hawaii.
