Dear Beach,

Dear Beach,
You were so lovely. It's not the same since we've been apart.

Why did we have to leave you so soon? I'm sure you're missing us, too.

What with us carving out your shoreline

So focused and intent.

And tossing your waves around like we own the place.

We did have a few good times, though. We played solitaire frisbee into your wind.

And had some good laughs. Let's just remember the happy times, okay, Beach?

And let's just pretend we didn't upset your natural habitat. Who really cares about sand fleas anyway? Especially humongous ones. They don't do anything for your rep.

And that crab... well... he was hungry. And so were we.

Speaking of natural habitat, we really owe you for that dolphin show. You really outdid yourself there and secured my lasting devotion.

But we both know that I'll never stray from our love. I know you will be there when I return with my big cooler, too fair skin and sucked in tummy.
And you know that I will always return.

Until next time.

That sand flea is HUGE! And Henry looks just like you, it's amazing! Looks like you guys had a great time!!

Love, love, love the focused and intent photo - BEAUTIFUL! (Okay, handsome. But really? Beautiful.)

The sand flea, though, I could have done without.

I loved your sweet depection of your time at the beach. Is it you who said that they needed to call me about writing things? I think not!!! You are a writer to be sure! Hugs!!!

Too cute. Glad you had a good time, sand fleas and all.

About those pumpkin cookies - I just put some icing in a zip lock and snipped off the corner for the piping. You are a master baker & cook, so I know you'll be fine! Hope you have fun making them!
