We spent our 4th of July afternoon at Crater Island beach. It takes about 30 minutes by boat to make it from our dock to the Crater Island. We brought our impressionable young kids to the party cove where bikini-clad girls and beer bonging boys were listening to loud music and hanging out in the summer sun. And the kids loved every minute of it. I don't even think they paid much attention to the party scene as they were too busy playing with their cousins and friends. Cullen and his buddy Logan loved running up and down the sand dunes, while Simone just floated in the water. Happy birthday America!
