When Amy, Lachlan, & I walked over to the beach yesterday afternoon we passed a young lady walking back to her car in a bikini. There were only a few folks down by the water, but they were lounging in beach chairs reading novels, tossing sticks to dogs, sunning themselves in bathing suits, and swimming in the surf.
We waded in the shallows, picked up shells (Amy found a beautiful Scotch Bonnet), played in the sand, and enjoyed the warm sun on our backs. All in all it could hardly have been a better day at the beach -- and it's the middle of November!
