....and swim. Lou Ann and I went to the beach this morning. Even though we walked over at the lifeguard stand the beach was empty as far as we could see in either direction. We walked for several miles (did eventually pass a woman and her dog, and later, when we got back to the stand, several people appeared).
We thought the ocean might feel a tad chilly, but even early in the morning the water was comfortably warm. The waves were just the right size to dive under or catch for a short ride. Before long we realized we were hungry, so we headed home for blueberry pancakes and orange juice.
Twas a pleasant way to start the day.
