This past weekend my older brother Ivan and his family were in town so I decided to take them out and introduce them to Bean Hallow state beach for a nice day of tidal pool exploring and BBQ.

Local inhabitants taking in some early morning sun.

My niece Illeana loved soaking her feet in the various pools collected in the rocks.

My nephews Isaac and Israel exploring the tidal pools.  It was awesome to see their utter enchantment of the sea.  Somehow I hope to capture some of that feeling of total wonderment in my work. That's what I hope to at least...trying.

After a day of exploring and playing by the beach, its time to eat.

As the day comes to an end I'm already thinking of the next time I can revisit.
