Seabrook holds a very special place in my heart. In 2015 I heard about Seabrook from a close friend. I saw the website and was very impressed. I figured it would be a fabulous place to have a family reunion. We don’t normally do too much about family reunions, maybe go to the park together or have family time in the canyon. This was taking a big leap. It would cost money and time, a bit prohibitive with a family of 25. We finally decided to go over our 47th wedding anniversary and arranged for 2 cottages to house our large family. We traveled from Salt Lake City to Seabrook with 3 large groups. We arrived at the beautiful setting on the gorgeous Pacific ocean and were overwhelmed with the beauty. The days that followed were amazing. We flew kites, built sand castles, played in the water and on the beach and had full scale family meals. We played in the swimming pool, ate together and went on many adventurous hikes and explorations snapping pictures as we went. We couldn’t get enough of Seabrook. All too quickly the time was over and we traveled home together. This experience provided memories to spare. We couldn’t have known that this one experience would become so important in the following months. In early December my husband was killed in a tragic car accident, 3 months later my daughter fell ill and died. Our family was heartbroken. The family talked together at both funerals and expressed gratitude to each other for the days spent together at Seabrook. We will have memories in our hearts forever. Our last time together, how can you put a price tag on that? I cringe to think how we would have felt if we had decided to go a different year. Some things can’t be put on hold. Thank you Seabrook!
