SPT 08.30

Not exactly a flattering self portrait this week, but I just had to post this one because I love mary’s hair in this picture. We went to the beach this morning, trying to take advantage of all the last days of summer. It was incredibly windy, almost enough reason to turn around and go home, but we made the best of it. After trying to swim and getting whipped around by waves we stayed curled up in towels on the beach.
I did my best to stay upwind of emma’s sand play. She was busy making soup for all of us. I don’t know how many times I ran into the water to rescue her from the grip of the waves. I could tell they just wanted to swallow up a little girl in a pink bathing suit. After several choking, spitting, water-up-the-nose episodes she gave up on wave-jumping and stayed on dry land.
I love mary’s hair standing straight up in the wind, and the crusty patches of sand in her hairline. There is sand everywhere. After post-beach baths, there’s a  small sandbar forming in the bottom of my tub.  Once I’m done posting here, I will peel off my bathing suit and add to the collection.
Oh, and where did all those wrinkles come from around my nose and eyes?
