Year Two: The Mitchell Family

This summer has been pretty hot and humid, making for comfortable evenings at the beach for sunset. I met Nicola, Dave, Kiara and Leigh at Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth on one of their Maine vacation week nights. Kettle Cove is a small but quiet beach, great for kids with smaller waves and lots of tidal pools to explore at low tide.

Can't believe its already been a year since I met up with these guys a few miles down the road at Fort Williams Park - a year later they still resemble a set of twins, a bit more sure of themselves, gaining independence but still relying on mom and dad. There was a lot of hunting for the perfect stone to skip and then a lot of technique practicing - needless to say, a pretty perfect August evening at the beach.
