3 days after we got here we got invited to go to the beach for our ward's annual School's Out Celebration.
So we crossed this lovely bridge (and I drove on the Beltway for the first time) and ended up at the beach of the Chesapeake Bay.
It's hard to tell from this picture but the sand is almost orange.
The kids built sand castles and buried treasure (rocks).
It had rained the day before so the water was a smidge cold, but bearable.
And we ended the trip at the playground.
