I thought I'd share some of our most fantastic day with you. The weather was perfect, mid-eighties, and the waves were gentle.
Here's the view. That is a ship on the horizon. I just couldn't get enough of looking at the ocean.
Four of my guys. They were trying to get their act together for a pose. Never did quite make it, though.
This is Nicky, who apparently doesn't feel the need to removed the floating ring even when he's not in the water.
All of them brought their fins, snorkels and masks. In my writer's mind, they just looked like dead bodies floating in the ocean.
And one more last, gorgeous look at the view.
Later that evening we celebrated Paul's thirteenth birthday. I think we may have to make a trip to the beach a condition of every birthday!
We were all exhausted, but happy. And I remembered the sunscreen this time, so we didn't look like boiled lobsters. Well, most of us didn't. I sprayed my arms and throat, but forgot to do my face or the back of my neck and arms. So I look like a lobster when I leave the room. I can't believe I was that stupid! Anyway, have a great weekend.
