Day 3

Today, we began the day slowly.  Well, that is to say, we left to go golfing pretty late (for us), around 11/11:30 a.m. or so.  We did a round of 9 holes, then went home for lunch. The afternoon was spent lazing by the pool, where I read, then listened to music.  I don’t normally do the tanning thing, but it was nice to just take a break from always being on the go with my mom (she’s a planner — for example, tonight she asked me if I wanted to play tennis tomorrow — I normally just fly by the seat of my pants haha).  Later, I walked the beach to the pier and back (a short distance, but ample time to acquire some things for “On the Beach”!).  For dinner, crabs’ legs!!  Oh!  I must make note — today was the first day — possibly EVER — where I cut myself while cracking crabs’ legs!!!!  I know mentally I was out of it, but this was definitely a historic day.  (If you’re wondering, I’m pretty much a pro-crab-cracker.  If anyone’s going to get out that perfect strip of crabmeat, it’s me.  Seriously, there should be a contest for it.  😉  haha)  After dinner, more shopping, and I got a few more things — of course, really good deals (50% off was the weakest of the sales for the clothes I bought), so that’s always good.  I’m trying to build up a business wardrobe, and so far, it’s working out pretty well.  When we came home, I needed coffee (I feel bad but my mom was really tiring me today; I kept noticing that she hardly ever stops talking.  I also think I’ve figured out why my dad makes comments about buying real estate here — I think they annoy her, because she almost always is dead quiet after them.  haha, it’s funny what you notice after being away from parents for a while!), so I attempted to make a drink I had the other day: espresso (~2 shots), a good dose of chocolate syrup, lots of ice cubes, and milk to fill the glass.  It was pretty good, but I think I still prefer iced vanilla lattes….. just need to find a place to buy vanilla flavouring….. not that I’ve really looked, but I’m sure it probably isn’t too hard to find.  Anyway, it was a big glass, so about 3 hours later I’m still nursing it.  :laugh:  Well, without further ado, today’s list!

  • orange sponges in small ball shapes.  These are real sponges, just so you know.  These ones looked about the size of walnuts.
  • fluorescent green netting
  • 2 small white plastic bags with what appeared to be instructions on them
  • 1 sand castle complete with moat and surrounding umm, castle.  “Outer ward” it appears is the name I’m looking for.  Thanks to http://www.tccsa.net/weblinks/castles/ for that information!  Also surrounded by leftover building materials (ie. water bottles and cups)
  • 3 surfers (don’t get excited for me; they were young)
  • couple of older men, 1 offering me a shell (which I politely declined)
  • 1 little girl’s shoe (abandoned, or lost at sea?)
  • 1 mom (again, mine)
  • 1 beautiful sun
  • 1 happy me
