Beach babes

In life, they'd always have each other.
Both my boys love the beach, and I love bringing them to the beach. It is so easy to while the time away. Just throw some beach toys in the shade, order an ice cold beer from a beach vendor, slap on the sun screen, and it's happy days for the boys, husband, and I.

Receding tide making patterns on the beach of Club Med Bintan. 
We've left our footprint on so many beaches. Island/Beach hopping in Krabi, Thailand. Chinaman's Beach in Australia's Jervis Bay. Apollo Bay along the Great Ocean Road. Our perennial favorite -- Karon Beach in Phuket, Thailand. Bondi Beach in happy, happening Sydney. Langkawi in Malaysia. Freemantle and Cottlesloe in Perth. Prevelly Beach in Margaret River. Gold Coast, Queensland, and Green Island, Cairns. And then more recently, Seminyak and Nusa Dua in Bali. And both boys grew up exploring Singapore's beach at East Coast Parkway.

In a world of their own.
We've travelled far and wide yet nothing beats Indonesia's Bintan beach, which is just 45 minutes from Singapore by ferry. The sand at Club Med Bintan is fine, beach is clean, water is clear, no scary crashing waves (great for kids), and the beach is flat with a gentle slope into the ocean. The boys could walk and walk and walk into the sea for as far as they wish without suddenly plunging into a drop-off or stubbing their toes on corals. It stays constant, whether at high tide or low tide.

I watched my boys grow up at the beach, and I will continue to watch their footprints get bigger at the beach.
