Okuma Beach Trip

We decided to drive up to Okuma on the day before Mother's Day, May 9th. It's a really nice beach and "recreation center" that's located about 1 1/2 hours away. You can go up there and spend the day on the beach or even rent a cabin or tent to camp out on the beach in. You can also rent boating stuff, a jet ski, and do different activities like going out on a glass bottom boat. We basically wanted to go because it's something we haven't done yet, but I also needed a relaxing day at the beach away from our "usual" places. It was a nice change and the drive wasn't bad at all. We had a great time. We all got in the ocean for a few minutes and I got out to soak up some sun while the boys played for a few more minutes. Once Caleb got out he was freezing so he decided to lie down beside me and I wrapped him up in two towels. He was about to pass out, he was so tired! He didn't though, he was hungry and it was lunch time so the boys left to eat while I relaxed. We enjoyed the day and decided to ride in a glass bottom boat once they got back from eating. It was a short trip and the boat ride was pretty cool but nothing spectacular. We saw a lot of coral, some fish, and a few starfish but not much more than that. Once we were done with that we drove back home and spent the evening playing around the house. Here are some pictures from our day.

More views on our way.

The entrance to Okuma, obviously.

Some of the coral. Ignore the orange in the picture. It's a reflection of another kid's life vest.

Another view from the boat.

Caleb really enjoyed himself and liked calling the coral "wrinkles". Of course he got that from the other kid on the boat that was screaming it constantly.
