We spent several hours walking the beach, taking pictures, picking up shells and stones, just hanging loose. That is my favorite thing to do at the beach. I might wade, but I'm not much on swimming. Later I did get into the water for a while, and as we left, I remembered why I don't always get all the way into the water. SAND!! Lawdy mercy! I got under the water spouts as we left and changed out of the wet suit, but I still had sand all over. At home I showered .... and showered again .... and showered AGAIN!! Good grief! I had sand in places that I didn't know were places!!
What a beautiful beach this is!

The sun began to sink low in the sky ....
|What a beautiful sunset!!!|
|I had no idea of the effect I got with the surf in the dark till I downloaded these. So Cool!! This a good one to enlarge and get a good look.|
What a fantastic day! I really enjoyed it. On the way home we stopped to walk out on a seawall in the moonlight. Watching the reflections on the water was nice. Everything about being near or in seawater is soothing. I'm so relaxed tonight! I know I'm going to sleep well.
Dell stopped at another spot to look for five minutes at a scene, and when he started the car .... it WOULDN'T!!! There was power to the windows and lights, so we thought something in the ignition system was wrong. We sat for a few minutes, and he tried to call a couple friends, but neither was home. We pushed the car a few feet out of the way, in case we had to leave it overnight, and he put it in park. On a lark he tried it again, and IT STARTED! We headed the last few miles home, thinking at least we could be home for further problems.
As we drove along I began thinking about it, and I asked Dell if he was sure the car was in park when he tried starting it the first time. I remembered doing that a time or two, stopping and turning off the key without putting it in park, then being unable to restart it. At home, he tried it, and ... well, you know. That was it! Whew!
As I said, I'm going to sleep long and deep tonight. And I think I'll do just exactly that. Night, y'all!
