I find it so interesting that beaches look so different. "My" beach is the Chesapeake Bay, and it's usually calm, whereas the beach I'm at now, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, usually has fantastic waves. As a matter of fact, the three days prior to my visit, the surf was so rough, no swimming was allowed, as a safety precaution.
Double Bump, a new one for me, and I like it a lot. It should cheer me up when I do dishes, don't you think?
I also took a walk or two with my parents' dog, Bailey. Here she is, her little tongue dragging in the heat.
