Last Monday the kids had a random day off school, which I wasn't exactly thrilled about at first. But then the 83 degree forecast came out. So I talked my friends into a day at the beach. The water wasn't exactly swimmable, but still what a great way to celebrate the end of winter.
Flag Ponds is only about 1.25 hours from DC, making it the perfect day trip. It's also supposed to be a great place to find fossils and sharks' teeth, but we mainly played in the sand.
