Packed up and headed out today, after spending a beautiful afternoon on the beach. The waves had subsided to about five feet and I went for a swim with the denizens of the sea. The water was so clear I could see the horseshoe crabs on the bottom. There was a 911 event on the beach, and I watched the lifeguards go to work in crisis mode. Evidently a man who was body surfing was smashed by a wave and was unconscious. The life guards assumed a spinal injury. The medical emergency helicopter landed on the high way and carried him off. Hmmm gotta respect the sea, it can be wicked Yesterday a little girl cut her foot while playing in the surf, probably on a shard of shell. I made it back with a few bug bites! Hope to return on labor day for a couple more days.
