We are far away from most places. About a half hour traveling to get just about anywhere. (Minus the Dollar General which the locals apparently refer to as “The Wal-Mart” around here) But, we are also just about 40 minutes to the most spectacular beaches I have seen.
After a trip to the license store I decided that my handy gps was enough to trump my horrible sense of direction and that I would take us in the direction of the ocean. Oh, what a good decision that was.
Just a short drive it seemed, then we parked our picnic in the sand by a tide pool as big as a pond. Miles “caught” fish, lobsters, and crabs to his heart’s content. He floated boats of reeds and twigs and mainly just ran buck wild for hours. And I mean hours.
After a while, he walked right up to me and exclaimed with arms stretched, “Look at all the world mama!” I think I will keep my eyes wide open after that insight. What a day we had.
