Sorry about the lapse folks, I had half an hour free yesterday and as you can see, I chose to nap not blog. Ah well.
It was lovely.
The girls and I went to the beach today, a bit hot and sweaty, and youngest had a hilarious-in-retrospect encounter with a wave, which overcame her, engulfed her, rolled her over three or four times and deposited her sandy and wide-eyed on the beach. Boy was she sandy. Went through the spin cycle that girl did. She was fine, although she said it was kind of scary. I bet it was. All I could see was her face disappearing into the foam and then random bits of legs and arms emerging from the wave, and then her face. Her eyes were enormous. And, oh, the sand.
She's fine though and off at a birthday party.
The dog is exhausted. He went for a two hour walk in the mountains with the man this morning, then was out for about four hours with us.
I didn't get much sea glass, however what I did get was good. He is not a great sea-glass hunting dog, as he is scared of the sea. Every time there was a nice piece close to the water I had to negotiate with him. Eldest discovered just how scared when he slipped his collar in a paniced attempt to avoid a wave lapping at his toes.
Has issues, this dog does.
There were kite surfers at the beach:
The guys tried out the kites on the beach....I love the tracks they make in the sand as they are dragged along by the kites...
He's suited up now, with the board, and working the launched kite down to the water.....
And he's off....though in fact he wasn't very successfull and the kite dove into the drink shortly after that. I am also slightly mystified by the Bahamas blue of the sea in this shot....it was and is lovely, but not quite THIS blue.....
Eldest has decied that this is a sport she plans to take up.
