Uh, oh! and Wow!

I missed.  I know better.  They were so full last night, I just quit checking too early.  So what if I am exhausted, I needed to check them around midnight and I didn't .  So, I missed them.
They will dry up now and fall off.
I can always hope for the other stalk to produce.
Oh, bother. 
On a better note, we went to visit Caleb and Cassandra in Fernandina Beach .
The kids wanted a hole. 
The digging began and the kid corralling continued! 
The guys used a full sized shovel and dug a 10' pool.
The waves were just right, the water temperature was warm (86F) and there was a sandbar way out which made the swimming just right for dads and kids. 
Will was just as much a fish in the ocean as he is in the pool!
It was great to see him tackle the waves!
The man made tidal pool was a hit and the kids played all afternoon.
I looked for shark's teeth but didn't find any.  
I enjoyed the hunt, though.
Will enjoyed his Polar Express train when he got home;  it is sleeping on the bed table next to him.
We are going to bed sun kissed and contented!
It was a great beach therapy day!

  4. Oh, no.......darn flower. It must have wanted it's privacy!
    Your beach day looks magnificent. I need some beach therapy. I am so over the heat, the humidity and most of all the bugs. I've got my summer cranky on and it's only early June.
