We spent much of yesterday at the Naval Aviation Museum. The huge aircraft hanging everywhere or placed where we can get up close and personal is impressive but honestly my favorite part is the miniature aircraft carriers. Ironically, I am more aware and amazed by the sheer size of those ships when I see them scaled down.

After we had meandered around a while we went to the lighthouse and enjoyed a picnic under the shade of some huge old oak trees.

We walked along the beach and just enjoyed the beautiful day. While I cannot say that it was cool, the day was unseasonably not hot.


 Claire rolled her capri pants up as far as she could and splashed in and out of the water. She also drew in the sand.


She was with her people and all was well in her world.


And indeed it is.
