My mom recently moved to Egypt (ok, not actually Egypt, but definitely in-land from the ocean ha ha). The main perk to her move for us is that she now has a membership to the AWESOME Beach Club. WOOHOO! See pics:
It's basically a pool that's like a beach. Shallow. Peaceful. Beautiful. AND, there's a snack bar that sells snow cones. Um. Yeah. It's AWESOME!!! Happy Summer to us!! I know what you may be thinking. I live 2 miles from the ocean. Why would I want to drive 25 minutes inland to a pool?? Well, with little kids, it's not exactly a relaxing experience to go to the actual beach. We still do it a ton over the summer, but this beach/pool is actually relaxing for mommy too. Worth the drive, oh so worth the drive!
