Today is Wednesday and coincidentally coincides with my schedule off work at the office, so I decided to take my four children to spend time and relax by taking a walk to the beach.
Actually I want to take my kids to go on vacation somewhere a little different, and not always to the beach. For example, to a bathing place with a swimming pool (Wahana Water Boom) or to a mountainous area on Mount Salak Takengon. However, it is impossible for me to do that because my wife has not fully recovered from her illness and if I myself have to take care of the children at the tourist spot, it will be very troublesome.
Around 9:00 am this morning, my children and I left by motorbike and headed straight to the beach. Along the way I took the time to tell stories to the children, and tried to give an explanation of the beautiful natural panorama that is around us. There are several places where I decided to stop for a moment and take some photos that I think are interesting objects, one of which is the estuary. Here I saw a fisherman holding a net and looking for a suitable place to throw his net, and on the other hand I also saw a fisherman riding a canoe while throwing his net to catch fish.
Arriving at the beach then I invite the children to play as much as they want, because the beach is a very wide place and the wind is also very fresh. Indeed the weather that morning was a little cloudy, but thankfully there was no sign of rain. There is only one thing that I really care about, I forgot to bring the children's change of clothes. They all asked to be allowed to bathe in the sea, but I didn't allow it because we didn't bring a change of clothes. Finally I promised them that next time I will take them to the beach again and they are also allowed to bathe in the sea as much as they want.
Here are some photos that I can share:
