Beach Rituals

Long time Avalon property owners stopped by our office the other day.  A few years back, they sold their home on the bay, and now return on regular basis to visit family… and have recently discovered “the beach”.

The woman asked a question: “What’s up with the giant holes on the beach?”  She thought this must be a new trend (remember, they spent all of their family time on the bay).

I assured her it’s a long standing tradition (at least in my family) to dig a hole at the high tide line to keep the kids occupied.  The “big boys” bring real shovels to the beach for the excavation work, and take great pride in the engineering details such as steps and retaining walls.  If timed correctly, the ocean rushes in and creates a sandy swimming pool just before it’s time to leave  😉
