For some people who have lived their entire lives inland, a day at the beach can be a revelation. When the Shockey family from the tiny town of Wilder, Idaho, arrived at South Beach on Wednesday morning, the six kids got their first taste of the ocean — ever. As a bonus, their visit happened to coincide with Crescent City’s best day at the beach so far this year: no clouds and no chilly wind. Here are some of their reactions.
