While we were in California last fall (found a draft that never got posted, couldn’t let it go to waste) for my son’s Marine Boot Camp graduation we took in as much beach time as possible. My daughter could both live at the beach very easily, something soothing about the consistency and rhythm of the waves. Although the water was very cold, my daughter just had to go swimming, hey she’s sixteen, she knows enough to come in when she’s cold.
Next day she learned to body surf, and did a pretty good job of it too. She was so proud.
