Last weekend marked an important milestone in our seasonal beach rhythm. A day I dream about all winter long. That would be the first trip of the season to the beach without being frozen in 2 minutes. Hooray - I'm so glad it has arrived! It feels *so* good to easily breathe the ocean air in once again, and to eagerly anticipate the many many beach trips to come this year. And so now we just wait for the next marker - the first day we put our bodies into the ocean! Calvin's pushing for next week. I will not be surprised. Nor, however, will I follow. Yet, anyway.
