We tend to like to wander ‘off the beaten path’ and get away from where the throngs of tourists are (even though we are in fact tourists too!) We strolled Cayman Island to find a very very fresh fish market – so fresh that sharks and a giant stingray were right behind the booth, eating up all the fish scraps that were tossed back into the sea!  Then ran into some cool cenote’-like shore edges where we could do some more snorkeling without many people around:

Then while at another stop at Castaway Cay, my husband tried his hand at shooting with an underwater camera while we snorkeled.  Why is Minnie at the bottom of the sea you may ask?  We’re not sure either – but it was fun to find! (thx gregkessler.com for the pix!)

Once again E and Z’s dad was hired to shoot a week of fun science events around the city, and we had grandma in to help with staying on top of things while parents were working like crazy.  The WSF had some great outdoor activities – like exploring the water life around our local park (Gantry), as well as an amazing Star Gazing event later in the evening in Brooklyn! I think we were wiped out after a whole day of activity but were happy we could show grandma the ropes on the WSF!

For Max’s birthday the ‘Leo boys’ took a fishing excursion to the great wide ocean off the coast of Brooklyn.  While they didn’t catch anything edible (and compassionately threw many back to the sea) they came home smelling like briny fisherman and had a great day in the sun..!  We couldn’t help but think my dad would’ve loved this trip;

We’ve had a fun and fortunate summer .. fortunate in that many of our friends have invited us to peaceful retreats to the country. And it couldn’t come at a better time since there’s constant noise and smells (and today crazy heat!) coming from the busy street below our city apartment! Etta and Audrey had us out to their grandparents’ house where the kids could run through grass, play on swings and fish at the VERY local pond. Ezra and Zoe couldn’t get enough of their plants and the garden, where Ezra invented ‘chocolate mint sandwiches’ (basically the leaves from the chocolate-mint plant folded into a triangle and eaten right there by the garden.) Audrey loves to wear her bunny ears and hop around – heck I love the ears too. And of course there was a session of s’more making at night – how could we go without one?

End of the summer, trying to play on the lake in the rain, Loren created a humongous paella, fishing, figs from Megan’s yard, and Zoe cannot seem to take her mind off that nest swing. She wants to swing in it all day! Her feet hanging out of the front… slays me. The level of cuteness is ridiculous.

After spending some time in Maine we travelled back down to Martha’s Vineyard. The kids loved the ferry ride and seeing their cousins again (see our previous outing with them here). We often woke to wild turkeys walking in the backyard, and the kids learned a bit about fishing – a hobby and tradition that Papa is happy we are keeping alive!

While in Portland we stopped by the Children’s Museum and Theater of Maine. Lots of info on whales, lumbering, camping, farming and lobster fishing. Obviously Ezra LOVED the area where he could pretend to fix a car and fill it with gas!
