it was a KTYD rock block weekend, so we listened on the solar-powered freeplay radio and found some cool rocks while we were digging in the sand. great thing about the beach is that the very earth is so much fun, ever changing and never boring. you can sit in a driftwood lean-to, slightly sheltered from the brisk wind, and just enjoy the view.
do you know that i forgot my inhaler? and it did not matter. the air was pure and clear and i could breathe, and i did breathe, and it was good.
KTYD played great music. desperado, why don’t you come to your senses? i have no answer for that one but then they played some stones and then some great cuts from pink floyd’s the wall. our walls were very different, and the perspecitve was thrilling. our roof was pretty cool too, it showed us the sky in places.
some people and dogs walked past, they looked at us, i smiled, they didn’t smile back. so i took their picture after they stopped looking at us. oh! and a sailboarder who had sailed past earlier, walked past, heading upwind, to start over.
also (and there are no pictures) i taught my son how to pee in public. first i figured on windspeed and direction, factored in shelter from prying eyes, and instructed him how to aim. we were far from bathrooms, so this worked out well.
we left at the point where kurt expressed tiredess and besides, the can of foster’s i’d been sipping became uncomfortable for me. nice long walk back to the car, five minutes driving home, back to the usual weekend afternoon on our computers.
but we got out, and it was good.
