When we went to Curpus Cristi to explore the USS Lexington, we decided to take the opportunity to let the kids swam in the ocean. We live in a mountainous region in West Virginia and we are very far from the ocean. The closest water we could go is the Lake Eerie which is still far from where we live. Anyway, when we were in Curpus Cristi, the kids collected some sea shells to bring home. Here are some of the photos while they were gathering the shells.
It's very seldom we get to see this so they made use of the time while we were there.
