We had a hand me down water swim diaper that luckily fit her. We stuck her in a long sleeve tee shirt and loaded up on sun block. I got to pack a family picnic since she eats bread and peanut butter now - how fun! Also she likes to 'eat' apples whole now. She'll suck the juice out (her only exposure to juice) and try and get bits of the fruit. She still has no teeth so it's a challenge.
After a baby size beach time in the sun we got cleaned up and ate our lunch before heading home. Ashby was completly exhausted! Complelty wiped out! She could barely hold her eyes open while getting her strapped in her carseat. This is after napping on the car ride down and only an hour or so playing. Being a beach baby is hard work apparently!
I loved Ocean View beach. No crowds, free open parking feet from the water, clean bathrooms, clean beach, gentle waves, shopping/restaurants across the street if you need anything, and it's right off the highway. I would definitely go back and recommend it!
