Someone finds their secret, water-loving self.

For the first time in Nasnabostone blog history, we’re posting something on the day that it actually happened! We’re not quite caught up on our life’s story, but we thought we better post in the present now and then, too.

So… check out our trip to the beach:

While we still have summer (although it’s not as hot as it was a couple weeks ago) we decided we needed to go to the beach. About a month ago, we picked up a boogie board at a garage sale and a wetsuit on Freecycle, so we’ve been looking for a chance to test them out. We drove about an hour north to Plum Island, where we went for a morning run, ate lunch,  and then jumped in the ocean.

The water was chilly, but really refreshing. After being in for about half an hour I’d have to get out and warm up for a while, but T, with her wetsuit, basically became part fish, part surfer chick and just boogie boarded the day away. She had a giant grin on her face the entire time. The pictures below prove her dedication to the sport.

After discovering her hidden love, she officially joined my quest to become a Northeast surfing bum. Once we get a couple old longboards (if she’s this serious, it’s time to graduate from the boogie) and a second, taller wetsuit we’ll quit our day jobs and spend our life on the sea.

    What a great documentation of your trip out to the coast. Some day I’d like to tour that area as well. Gorgeous photos of the architecture as well. Chicago looks like a beautiful city. Wishing all the best for the two of you!!
