little review

Poem for Monday

Sunday we had mostly a beach day. My father played tennis in the morning, then we all went to the shore -- me, apaulled and younger son to the ocean the entire time, older son and my parents to one of the complex's outdoor pools. The Atlantic felt much colder than it did the week before when we were in Emerald Isle in North Carolina with vertigo66 and the waves were rougher, but this didn't faze younger son in the least. He and I found sandcrabs and clams and jumped waves while apaulled, who had twisted his ankle jogging last week, hung out at the water's edge and spotted pelicans.

In the late afternoon, after watching Italy win the World Cup, my hubby, my mother and I went to the Seaside Country Store in Fenwick Island to get crab nuts, fudge and other gourmet necessities, then to the brand new Super Giant while my father took the boys to one of the complex's indoor pools. (We are staying here in large part because my parents love the pools and tennis courts.) Younger son and I took a walk to look for frogs in the local swamp before dinner. In the evening we watched True Caribbean Pirates, which was on the History Channel in honor of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men's Chest being in the theaters. We're hoping to get to it before the week is out.
