Yesterday was a beach day for us. I wanted to show everyone Big Beach. It’s a beautiful stretch of clean sand and blue water. It didn’t disappoint.
The problem was that it was a surf advisory day yesterday. The waves were big and powerful. We tried to swim anyway, but it was strong waves. Tim and I went out farther than we should, and had trouble getting back in. Tara got wiped out by a crashing wave closer to shore. After we got back to safety, the lifeguard made a loudspeaker announcement about how it was unsafe to swim and was not a family-friendly beach. We left.
We went to the beach near my apartment – Sugar Beach. It was perfect. We swam and bobbed in smaller waves and had fun. It was a proper beach day.
Beth took this picture of her feet.
She didn’t notice that we were in the background. It’s a funny picture because I’m face down in the water. I had just body-surfed a wave.
