Beachy Keen

Late last evening we took our first trip to the beach this spring. I think around Christmas was the last time we took a stroll on the sand, this is the first one warm enough to kick off shoes since last fall. It was fun and I took some video of the dog frolicking about.

Unfortunately, this weekend is also the first drowning of the season. I walked ankle deep into the water, and my guess is that this poor kid was in serious trouble ten minutes after he was pulled out into the rip current. I’m a little amazed that anyone was willing to swim in water that cold. 20 seconds of my feet submerged was plenty for me.

  1. Hey, man, don’t hide from Harlan Ellison’s wrath. Go to his site and confront him like a man. He can take criticism if you can make a good argument, which you cannot in this case.
