The beach today was simply gorgeous. Blue-green water; warm sun; large, gentle waves. Lou Ann & I took Lachlan this morning, but he was too tired to really enjoy himself. He walked into the shallows and a wave knocked him off balance. Mostly he just wanted to be held.
So we took turns swimming out beyond the breakers, where the water was chest to chin deep. We floated, swam, dove under a few waves, and let the salt water relax our sore muscles.
Friends are visiting the island this week, so we'll invite them over to sit on our front porch this afternoon, and then we'll walk or bike down to the harbor to listen to island guitarist Martin Garrish & friends.
Not a bad way to spend a hot July Sunday.
