Kay's husband Gayle joined us on the adventure.
It took about 2 1/2 hours to get to the seashore but was worth the trip. I had to keep myself from running right into the water.
Some of the students didn't really enjoy the water but were happy to relax in the shelter, read, and talk. They brought wonderful snacks for us to share. My favorite was the grapefruit. I have never loved grapefruit but this was delicious--sweet and a little dry. Two of the students appeared to love the water as much as I do!
The wind was so strong that my sun hat was nothing but a nuisance. One good sized wave managed to take me clear under but I didn't mind a bit. There were also 2 swimming pools there--one a salt water pool which really didn't make much sense to me. Kay and I swam in both.
