Today was a different sort of Sunday. Jessie and Vergil had taken their little boys down to a nearby beach called Mashes Sands. The same one they generally go to and the one where my header picture was taken. Today Mr. Moon wanted to take one of his boats down there as he'd recently had some engine work done on it and he wanted to give it a test run.
More on that later.
BUT, here's what the sky and the water looked like today. Just blue as it could possibly have been and I thought about the last time we went down there and a huge storm rolled in making the sky look like the angriest bruise you can imagine. Not today though.
The boys were very, very happy to see us and part of that was because they knew we were bringing cookies. But I don't think it was entirely the cookies. As soon as we pulled up in the boat, the boys waded to where we were tied up to that dock and asked if they could take a ride in the boat and could their parents stay at the beach so they could ride with just Mer and Bop?
As delightful as this idea was, boats make me anxious. I'm not worried I'm going to drown. It's just that I've been in so many boats that have broken down or gotten grounded or just been some kind of pain in the ass. Not to mention that I have another connection with boats that involves my stepfather and we need not say more about THAT.
So I wasn't too wild about the idea and Vergil ended up going on a little ride with them which was fine and then they anchored up and fished for awhile.
