First, I've gone and done it now! I finally set up a Facebook page for Whooo's in Second...you can follow me there, or better yet, Like me. I love being liked!
Second, I've been at the beach all week, so I was able to actually take time to read something fun...Dorthea Benton "Dottie" Frank's newest book, The Last Original Wife.
Third, I went out in the surf on a sandbar today with a little tiny net and a Solo cup. I caught a HUGE assortment of sea life and shells galore! It was like having my own little tide pool habitat for a couple of hours. Honestly, I just sat and watched all the hermit crabs, mole crabs, sea cucumbers, onion anemones, sea lettuce and so many more unidentifiable plants and animals, that I felt like a little kid again. I grew up going to Sunset Beach, NC, and still do, but never since I was about eight, can I remember finding the sorts of things I found today!
|onion anemone - first I've ever seen!|
|this is how it looked when it opened|
|mole crab - I've been catching these|
for days, but had to google them to
figure out what they were!
|sea cucumber - an eight year old girl had to remind me|
what this weird thing was!
Fourth, I finally took out my camera tonight and took some amazing photos of the full moon and the sunset on Sunset! Both were beautiful, and I'll download those pictures soon to add to this post.
Fifth, I really did start writing this post on Friday, even though it's one a.m. Saturday now, and that, my friends, is a first!
So, it's off to bed - I still have to pack it up for home in the morning...my husband may kill me when he realizes how late I've stayed up!
