The First Beach

10:07 AM | ,

Before Hikari's birthday, Papap planned to take some days off from work so he could take Hikari and Mama out of town. He said we needed a holiday. Mama couldn't agree more ;).

When Hikari was asked where he wanted to go, he mentioned that he wanted to go to the Safari park and to the Beach. At first we agreed to go to the park. But, when Eyang Kung (Hikari's grandpa) heard about Hikari's wish to go to the beach, he asked us why we didn't go to Carita Beach.

Carita village is Eyang Kung's hometown. It's been awhile since his last visit to his own hometown, while Mama hasn't visited the village for 5 years already! How about Hikari? He'd never been to Eyang Kung's hometown at all!

So, Papap agreed to take us to Carita Beach. Beside, let me tell you a secret, Hikari had never been to a beach before in his entire 5-year-time life. He has seen seas, in Japan (Kobe, Tokyo, and Yokohama), but he'd never played or bathed at the beach.

In Carita, our family houses are located just across the beach. Long time ago, when the beach was still free from resorts, we could see the beach and the waves from our terrace. Now, it is just history. Resorts block our view to the beach. How irritating!

So, on the 25th, we headed to Carita. There were only four of us -the three of us and Eyang Kung. Eyang Uti canceled her plan to join us because she was busy. Hikari was very much excited when he saw the sea from the car window. He couldn't wait to go play at the beach. We spent 3 days and 2 nights there. Whenever there was time, Hikari would spend it at the beach. You can imagine how tanned he is right now! #:-SIt makes Mama remember my childhood. Mama used to spend mornings and afternoons swimming. That's probably why Mama's complexion is darker:D .

The beach acrossed our family land is clean and wide. Only the waves are brown because of the sand. But, there is no coral there so we can play in the water comfortably. When Mama was a kid, the beach was wider and cleaner than now. The only things that occupied the beach were trees. Now, they are cottages...

He brought back some star fish and clams back home...

Hope we can manage to be back soon.
