Shipman's Beach

Yesterday we hiked to Shipman’s beach with some of our friends. We got to the trail head in the morning because the forecast said that it was going to rain in the afternoon, and when the trail gets wet, it also gets muddy. The hike is about 2.5 miles of level trail through mosquito infested, beautiful jungle, so it took us almost an hour and a half to get to the actual beach. When we finally got there, Enoch and I jumped right in with our spear fishing gear. Because the tide was super low, we quickly realized that there weren’t any fish that were big enough to spear. The water was very cold because a large spring fed pond just up the hill on the Shipman's property was running into the beach area, and it overpowered the warmth of the ocean. We played on the beach for a while and then a few of us climbed a tree that was hanging over the water. We hung in a hammock for almost an hour and laughed and talked. We kept breaking open coconuts to eat and Enoch and Brady made coconut bras out of them. When we were all worn out we hiked back to the parking lot. We had lots of fun at the beach with our friends. It was definitely one of my favorite beach days yet!
