Mom and dad went off to the beach again yesterday. Unfortunately for them, the conditions there didn't allow for
much fun to be had. Although the photos don't adequately show it, the surf was extremely rough to the point of "No Swimming"
signs having to be posted, and the wind blew the sand so hard that it stung. I guess there's a storm offshore or something, which caused these conditions.
They stayed at the beach for an hour or two, then returned to wash the dumptruck loads of sand out of their hair, ears and other, more unmentionable parts. Where dad is standing in the bottom picture is about as far as he was allowed to go, and he said even the water rolling over his ankles was enough to knock him off-balance at times.
