Beach part deux -- In which Henrik goes native!

A few years ago Olof and I were here (Byske) in the summer time. I dragged Olof to the beach and boy oh boy was the water cold. I don't think he even put his feet in! I figured it would probably be cold again, but since there has been a heat wave, I had my hopes up.

Olof's uncle stopped by the night we arrived and mentioned that "People were in the water!"

My heart sang! I would be able to drag him to the beach again with Henrik in tow. We even made it down one night to scout it out (see the previous post).

Yesterday, we went after lunch. It's a quick walk (maybe 10 minutes). We found a nice spot, put down the blanket and changed Henrik. We totally couldn't resist buying him a speedo, but we aren't sure he liked it.

As we walked into the water, Henrik laughed heartily every time a wave hit him. We stopped to play on a sand bar with water up to his belly button. After a quick rinse, we went to the blanket to play in the sand.

We had a great time and are heading back tomorrow!

After the beach you need a bath and in the endless day that is summer here, we gave Henrik a bath outside and he LOVED that just about as much as the beach.

I gotta say, he's becoming such a fun little dude.

Going native, and not loving it
