In the morning there were the usual suspects.
Off to the beach! I packed up a bag (forgetting my swim shirt, more sunblock, and bug spray) and headed off. As soon as I got onto the beach I looked left, and there were 2 open chairs with sweet, glorious shade - umbrella *and* trees! I plopped myself down and settled in for a wonderful afternoon. I read until I got hot, and then I either ran into the water for a dip (it was wonderful) or ran to the bar for a daiquiri and a refill on my icy cold water. A couple of times I scooted my chair back further under the trees for excellent shade as the sun moved. This was the kind of beach afternoon that vacation dreams are made of!
Oh, and here is the green iguana, the pond boss.
