Here she is on the beach.
In this one, she's in the waves. This was pretty much her reaction to every wave: even the smallest of waves would knock her down and then she'd run away only to come back for the next one.
In this one, she's found a particularly intriguing sea shell.
The thing she most enjoyed on the beach were these little bivalves (I think they are some kind of clam, or maybe a mussel... not sure). When a particularly large wave would come up, it would expose tons of these on the shore. As soon as the wave retreated, they would all dig themselves back into the sand. Mira was fascinated by watching them dig. If they didn't dig fast enough, she would "help" them by pushing them down into the sand herself. Then when they were all buried again, she'd sign "more". We eventually started farming them for her to play with.
