We visit the nearby beach several times a week. The water sprawls out shallow and warm for ages -it’s warmer than our shower, by far. There are restaurants dotting the shore where we can sit and sip coconuts, cocktails, or coffee, or eat dinner if we want. Otherwise, we can just plop ourselves onto the sand.
The kids don’t come out until 4 or 5 pm. Which makes sense – that’s also been the ‘playground time’ in most of the countries that we’ve visited. This month, Theo has pretty completely adapted to playing through a language barrier. Tonight, we hung out in the water with about a dozen kids and their parents; Theo wrestled, splashed, looked for crabs, and had a blast.
