Why I Love the Drive On Beach
Dear drive on beach,
I love you. You make my life as a Mom easier. You make my family happier. You are the epitome of why I love living on Cape Cod and raising my children here.
More specifically, we love you Sandy Neck beach.
Thank you for letting our dog come along.
For allowing me to pack AS MUCH STUFF in the car as I please. That I don't then have to lug out onto the beach along with my pack of children. Even if things never leave the car, no sweat for me. Beach high chairs, coolers, grills, tents, blankets, snacks, clothes, towels, friends... we shove it all in there!
Oh and people pulling up and visiting by boat?? Well that's a good way to get to see all the kid's brains explode from happiness.
It's where life long friendships are made.
You want your kid to get off a screen and come join the world? Strand them on the beach with no choice but to experience how beautiful the Earth is.
Make an everlasting memory while building a sand castle with your Mom.
Destress in front of a campfire.
Fall in love with the place you live watching a sunset.
Don't forget, if you get the night off from kids, it is the cheapest/best date night or afternoon you could have. 6 pack of beer, sandwiches, the radio, and no one in sight. That's how husband and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary.
Let's not forget that you can drive a camper out there and spend the night. Waking up at the shore of the ocean sometimes makes me wonder if I have stumbled into a dream.
Wondering how you can get in on this Cape life living??? Here is some more information on the drive on beaches of our beautiful home.
