When it rains something spectacular happens, especially in the eyes of a two year old. The Basin fills up with water and becomes a smallish lake...perfect for "Papa" to take his grandson out in the little blue canoe to look for whales and sharks.
And of course the kid in me couldn't miss out on the chance to look for deep sea animals...I swear we saw a sting ray in there!
Uncle Paul, also not wanting to to disappoint the child within took a much more adventurous approach. "Push me down from the top of the hill, Dad!" were the words that came out of his mouth. Of course, my dad quickly obliged. We all laughed hysterically when he ended up soaking wet when the front half of that little boat submerged from the hard push down the hill.
And here is Baby B. far past bed time, those blue eyes were piercing in the rain.
***Yes, Bianca has boy pajamas on. Jacks pajamas in fact. I packed light for the trip...I mean REALLY light. Oh, and I promise she doesn't have crazy hair all the time. She was moments away from bed, and the later in the day it gets, the less I fight those tangly curls!
