We finally got around to taking a beach vacation. It was just a day trip, but still a vacation. And it wasn’t really a beach, since a beach is attached to an ocean or at least a sea. This sand is attached to a lake.
The boys and I spent the Fourth of July playing in the sand and splashing in the water at the Bozeman Beach in the Gallatin Recreation Area. (Details for getting there are below the photos.)
This is the perfect spot for little kids. There is plenty of sand to dig and the water is shallow a long way out. While we watched people canoeing and floating around on innertubes, I read my book and the boys wore themselves out having fun.
The pictures I took of the boys were so cute, I couldn’t decide which ones to post, so I posted them all. aha ha ha ha….
Getting there: Drive north on 7th St, cross over the highway, turn right on Griffin, left on Manely Rd. and right at the signed entrance to the East Gallatin Recreation Area.
Dogs are not allowed anywhere in the park or lake.
