Bye week. The fall Sunday that I have no idea what to do with.
Started out with a great meal. Pot roast, fried okra & black eyed peas. Nope I didn’t cook, but it tastes home made. Comforting.
Had planned on going to visit Airlie Gardens for the free residents day, maybe even the museum, but got a text while eating that had me scoping out the beach instead.
KITE FEST 2011! Had visions of the diamond shaped ones we “tried to fly” as kids, but I was SHOCKED at the sight I saw. Forgot all about the gardens.
Parking was a bear. All the public spaces near the end of the beach were taken & I passed 2 patrol people passing out tickets to people ignoring the NO PARKING ANYTIME signs. So this was a fundraiser for the local government… got it. Finally found a space in a lot down the beach & decided that the walk would do me good anyway. Start the fitness program off right.
Hit the beach with the camera & felt a bit silly being on the beach in sneakers, but it was chilly. Few steps on down & SLIP… what the? That’s when I spotted them – slippery little landmines ALL OVER waiting to help some unsuspecting soul face plant right into the sand.
When I say all over, I mean ALL OVER.
Glad I wore my sneakers & was really glad I brought the epipen with me just in case. No need to test it thought. I treaded carefully watching every step but admittedly I still slid around a bit.
But it was so worth it.
On to not as fun stuff like laundry & maybe attempting to clean out a closet around here. All while humming a song I had stuck in my head ever since leaving the beach.
