We are currently on the North Carolina shore and Robby has seen the beach for the first time. What a sweet boy. He is pretty afraid of the waves, which, granted, are huge compared to him at his level. I would be scared, too. But, he's a trooper. He naps on the beach while we play in the waves as an aunt or uncle reads a book by him. He has tasted the sand a little bit but doesn't seem too interested enough to keep at it.
