Chambers Family Beach Trip
My work van seats eight humans and just as many dogs and the trailer holds all their stuff.
We may not be the Kennedy clan at Kennebunkport Maine - but the Chambers clan at Lincoln City, had a wonderful four days enjoying long walks on the beach with grandkids running, building sand castles, flying kites and exploring our own discovered hidden cove while the dogs barked and chased after.
|Looking for shells in the sand on our own little private beach accessed when the tide goes out and everyone runs like mad before the waves come in and soak you.|

caves to explore
....and we were not the only ones in the caves
|Panoramic view off the deck. No, I am not the photographer, our son Ian is the artist|
|The second floor deck covers the entire back of the house and is great to just kick back and enjoy the sun and the view|
|Sea Whips make a fun game of move it or lose it|
|And Aunt Jackie has a mean swing|
|Lucy is having "see food".....get it?|
|After a meal it was time for some quiet time and Little Ninja kept watch over such events.|
|After a good night sleep it was up early to go beach combing but first Lucy had snuggle time with dad and Ninja|
Then it was time to put your boots on and get walking
fly another kite

The Chambers family beach trip always includes MeMas famous Clam Chowder which everyone loves including the "Little Terrorists"
This year uncle Ian cooked up a large pot of his spicy chili and corn bread
....I think that spoon no longer has a bowl left on the bottom of it. I had three helpings of it, but it was definitely off the children's menu.

|......or jump some waves|
|.......or just bury a very patient dog in the sand|
There is nothing better than fresh salt air to take the war cries out of the little warriors and bring a sense of peace and quiet over the house.
