Welcome! Lenkaland shares my adventures in creative photography, raising two kids, writing, living with chronic illness, raising a daughter with dyslexia, and swimming with mermaids. Hope you have a nice stay!

We found $4.95 breakfast by the beach. So we had to let the kids on the sand. The high tide wasn't as high as the day before.  Family arrived and more family arrived until it was a complete beach party! Anika packed her own bags and left out important things like . . . pants, leggings, skirts.  So she ended up at the beach in her party dress, which I find adorable.  She was covered in sand while she raced waves in burgundy velvet.  That's my girl.
