This is a large lake with an undertow. I was hesitant to let them go in above their navels. Above is Keegan checking out the lake. He is quite comfortable in the water. Below, Cassie and Kaleigh joined him. First just wading, then with their t-shirts on and soon after in full swim gear.
There is a small tidal pool on the beach that the children were investigating. Lucy got a small cut on her foot. She kept her shoes on after that, but still played a few minutes in the water with the bigger guys.
