One of the first things we did once Scott came back was to go through the very long list of boat projects that we have to do before we can head off to the Bahamas.
Here's the problem with project lists - they're utterly depressing. They make you realize how much you have to do, how much it's all going to cost and how much you don't have a clue about.
What do you do when you're overwhelmed by your boat project list? You lock up your boat, get in the car and drive as far away as you can before you run out of gas. We got as far as Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida where we rented a cottage for a week so that we can chill out and muster up our courage to tackle the boat project list.
We've been going out for long walks on the beach while we've been here and admiring sandcastles.
This one isn't so much a sandcastle as a sand snowman.
And it wouldn't be Florida without a turtle made out of sand and shells.
There were plenty of more traditional sand castles. Some were pretty elaborate with complicated moat systems.
Do they have better sandcastle making equipment nowadays? The ones I made as a kid never looked as good as the ones we saw.
And of course, sandcastles as a reminder that everything fades with time. I wonder what this one looked like originally before the water and wind eroded it.
When's the last time you made a sandcastle or played on the beach?
