We have arrived to the Hotel Yaya beach house! The trip thus far has been so wonderful! We followed Kim and Kevin down here, while little Gavin hopped in our car to ride with the kids. They all enjoyed the car trip. However, I think they asked us about two dozen times if we were almost to the beach.
The ferry ride to Crystal Beach was really cool. For some reason, I was incredibly nervous about that part of the trip. From the ferry, we saw a couple porpoises playing in the Gulf. Once on land again, we drove just a few more miles and reached our destination. Did I mention the house is directly on the beach? I mean on the beach. Unfortunately, the house wasn’t really ready for guests, so I took the kids down to the beach/ocean to play around. Since I was out numbered, they had to agree to stay away from the water. It was actually an easy promise for the kids to keep, since the sand was so fun.
The beach was FULL of shells and the kids were so excited…who am I kidding I filled my pockets with some gorgeous shells too. We had a blast digging in the sand with shovels and fingers. The kids just plan had a blast with everything! They played and played and played. After showering, we put them all in the bunk beds together for a goodnight sleep. They must have been worn out because together those three are anything but quite, and they went down without a peep :) I cannot wait to enjoy the rest of the week in vacation paradise!
