My son and daughter-in-law are here on the island this week with their three children. It is a delight to have them here. The weather is perfect -- cooler than it has been recently, but the ocean temperature is just right. We've all been to the beach every morning so far. The waves have been so much fun -- big enough for body surfing, but not so powerful as to dissuade the younger ones from venturing out. They've also been enjoying building sand castles.
We all had dinner at the Jolly Roger last night where we enjoyed Gary, David, Marcy, & Lou entertain us with classic Americana tunes. Tonight, after dinner, we'll join friends in their living room for some "pickin' & jammin.'" We're planning to visit Springer's Point one day this week, maybe look for clams, take some bike rides, play a few board games & put a jigsaw puzzle together, and make a trip up to Hatteras (to see the lighthouse and the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station) on Thursday. Of course, we'll be back on the beach as much as possible.
