Observations from the beach......

So okay we borrowed this umbrella from a really good friend and really knowing how girlie she is we should've known we'd get a GIRLIE umbrella but when she said "grass" we assumed "tike hut grass" and not girlie grass. SNORT! Our bad.

As I bobbed up and down in the water (one of my all time favorite things to do really). It's so relaxing (but I digress). This is day #2 at the beach and honestly we're so used to the boat that we were so not prepared. NO sandwiches, NO napping in the A/C, so not ready. (But that's still another story really). You'd think we'd have learned from day #1. But noooooo.......

As I bobbed up and down in the water from my vantage point I got to watch "the show."

I saw dad's trying to lure their daughters in the water, making them be brave in the waves.

I saw young men trying to lure their ladies into the cold water w/the promise that it would warm up.

I saw young couples cuddling in the water, warming it up for those who were luring their loved ones in.

I saw lone mother's hanging with their young children.

I saw older couples soaking up the sun and being young at heart.

I saw tattooed young people walking the beach.

I saw young ones playing games.

I saw snorkelers checking out the ocean floor.

I saw fish that felt it necessary to be in my space. (more than once).

I saw love, lots of it, between young and old.

I saw my family and their love.

I saw a day of sunshine, blue sky, and the gulf - calm and sort of warm. Embracing all who came.
Whatever their agenda.
Their needs and wants were met down by the deep blue sea.
