penny met the sea, well actually the ocean, but i like to call it the sea. in her first year she'll have lots of "firsts", but not many trump the day this introduction was made. the sky was cloudy, but our hats were floppy all the same and that ice cold water only the craziest of us (...winnie...) really welcomed it with open arms. penny tried to sneak sand by the mouthful and on occasion she succeeded, but when the tide washed away and the sand was squishy between her toes even she couldn't help but to ask it back again.
my girl and the sea, it's a happy place in my heart for sure. enjoy these grainy, moody photographs from our day.
