Mal and I were up and at ’em yesterday morning. We each wanted to squeeze in a quick workout before a day at Duxbury Beach. Unfortunately, our workouts weren’t quick enough because when we arrived at 7:45 AM, non-resident was at capacity. Whomp whomp. We were bummed, but we made the best of our drive to Duxbury by stopping at Coffee Shack (in Marshfield) on the way home.
Butterscotch iced coffee? Yes, please! I was kind of bummed about the beach, but an Coffee Shack iced coffee and half of a sprinkle donut made it sooooo much better!
Quinn actually took the whole beach thing way better than we thought. The “overflow” beach that we were directed to was really blah (so many rocks), so he understood why we decided not to stay. Plus, we had to lug all of our stuff onto the beach – first world problems, right?
Anyway, we got our iced coffees and donuts and headed home. We played in Quinn’s pool (aka the best $40 we’ve spent this summer) and hung around the house until mid-afternoon. Then, around 3:00 PM, we headed back to the beach. (We missed the Great White sighting!)
FYI: My rainbow hat is from the RUN PROUD line at Brooks. I lovvvveee it. It’s definitely my go-to summer hat!
Driving on the beach in the afternoon was a success! We got on, no problem. Cheers to the beach!
Duxbury drive-on beach was worth the wait, and we had THE BEST time!!
Quinn found a wooden stick, which entertained him for the whole afternoon and into the evening. He fought waves in the ocean, we played Tick Tack Toe, wrote our names and other words (“brave the wave”) in the sand, and we drew body tracings of one another.
And, of course, the seaweed that washed up on the beach was a BIG HIT! Haha!
FYI: My bathing suit is from thredUP. Surprisingly, they have amazing affordable and high-quality bathing suits! And I’m wearing Kohv Sunglasses, which you might remember from last summer. I wore them a ton, and they’re just $20 a pair. You can save 10% of any pair of Kohv sunglasses with code carrotsncake!
After the beach, we stopped by The Anchor for drinks and dessert. I ordered a spicy cucumber margarita – delish!
And we shared the giant homemade chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich. Holy cow, it was delicious! We actually enjoyed one for my birthday too, so we’ve had 2 in 2 weeks. Ha! We are in love! 🙂
All in all, it was an amazing beach day. Have I mentioned how much I love the South Shore in the summer? 🙂
