On MLK day, we made plans to go to Newport Dunes with friends. We've never been to this beach before, but it's part of the Back Bay. There's no surf, and there were tons of shells to collect. We walked around the entire bay (one end has a bridge across to come back), played at the playground, and the kids splashed in the water. It was a good way to kill a few hours.
The middle children are the silliest.
