That's our boat "Summer School" in the picture frame above. She's moored at a favorite sandbar on the edge of North Key. Long ago, we named that sandbar after ourselves, as in "Ourlastname Beach" because it was such a favorite spot with the kids. We've been hitting it since they were little and wonder of wonders, we were all able to go out together Sunday. No one had soccer, work, school, dates (arrggghhh), or any other conflicts. It was sweet.
So we went to sea to play.
Beyond the bar is a deep channel that runs between Seahorse Key and North Key. The boat is on the flats side of the bar where the water is shallow and perfect for playing, fishing, beachcombing, ... whatever.
There were a few watery wrestling matches and even I was pulled into the water by two mischievious mermaids. In the center pic, Katie has started something she can't finish and Jr. has just dunked her with Emma's help. It was fun to watch them being silly together. August will bring dramatic changes to this trio as Emma moves to a college dorm.
Let's talk about something else ...
