Boogie fever

Morning fisherman at Hilton Head

Since Nebraska is a wee-bit landlocked, you might say that boogie boarding has been pretty much unheard of around here. 

Watching for that perfect wave to ride!
 We were at the beach last week -- Hilton Head -- to be exact and Miss Maddy was introduced to big waves and boogie boards. She was a little tentative at first, but got right into riding the waves.  Bonus that her cousin and the other older girls there watched out for her and helped.
Riding it in to the beach!

She did take a bit of a dunking once and then retired to sand activities!  Very fun times at HHI with hot temps and high humidity.  More posts to come as I finish laundry and get the sand out of the suitcases! :)

Cousin Grace showing her mad sand skills!
