I was born & raised in Oregon, where the beach was just a short drive away. The ocean water was usually freezing cold and the wind brisk, but I have so many fond memories of family day trips there - jumping waves, building bonfires and watching the sunset. Now that we live in upstate New York, this is the closest beach that we have. Being a lake-front instead of the ocean means it isn't quite the same, but it's still a fun place to come spend the day. And every time I watch the kids playing in the sand & splashing in the water, it brings to mind all those special moments I had growing up.
