Kelly has a lot of child-like innocence and actions about her, so her delight was contagious and I was thrilled with her reaction. Now, is this a happy face or what?.....
Once atop this HUGE Lighthouse, we get onto the narrow walkway at the top, so I take Kelly's picture while praying that those creaks I hear are not indicating some structural damage. Another thought crosses my mind as to how this might induce a fear of heights in someone who never had it before!!
After this, it was only an hour or so before we could check into our room, so I waited and half fell asleep in the registration room while Kelly went back to....the beach!
Kelly laughed and laughed over this next picture when she first saw it and said it was her favorite, so I have to post it for you.....
Even though I did not give birth to Kelly, she is my 'heart' (step) daughter and I love, care for and worry about her. She has such a sweet nature and wants everyone and everything to be 'all good'. And I want her to live a long healthy life, so she has recently joined weight watchers and I pray you will eventually get pictures of a trim and fit Kelly. But just look at the delight on this sweet face...she made the trip so worthwhile and enjoyable...
We brought back a good portion of the beach in the form of sand. Michael took yesterday off, so I didn't post then. He had been working a 15 hour and 25 hour day back to back , so I didn't even see him till 4:30 a.m. the day after we got back!!!
Hmmm...let's see where that big joke book is....
A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach pretty much every day. She wasn't unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; She would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around, then speak to them.
Generally, the people would respond negatively and she would wander off, but occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money for something she carried in her bag. The couple assumed she was selling drugs and debated calling the cops, but since they didn't know for sure they just continued to watch her.
After a couple of weeks the wife asked, "Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic devices?"
He hadn't and said so. Then she said, "Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she's really doing."
Well, the plan went off without a hitch, and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave. The man walked up the beach and met his wife at the road.
"Well, is she selling drugs?" she asked excitedly."
No, she's not." he said, enjoying this probably more than he should have. "Well, what is it, then?" his wife fairly shrieked.
The man grinned and said. "Her name is Sally and she's a battery salesperson."
"Batteries?" cried the wife ............................................
"Yes" he replied. "Sally sells C cells by the Seashore."
Our first day at a resort my wife and I decided to hit the beach. When I went back to our room to get something to drink, one of the hotel maids was making our bed. I grabbed my cooler and was on my way out when I paused and asked, "Can we drink beer on the beach?" "Sure," she said, "but I have to finish the rest of the rooms first."
What does a shark eat with his peanut butter?
What does stuck seaweed say?
What do you find on a small beach?
~~~Thank You Lord for the blessings of safe arrivals for the many times we have traveled long or short distances.
