The Perfect Day

Aunt Allie came into town this weekend and for two very different reasons we both found ourselves broke and looking for something to do. We decided on the beach. It fit our budget, was fun and was something her children had not seen for quite some time.

The lifeguards were flying a green flag which let us know the swimming conditions could not be any better. There was very little surf, no dangerous marine life and no undertow to worry about. It was the perfect day to spend at the beach with your children.

We spent most of the day splashing about the diamond speckled water reflected by the sweet summer sun. We floated and jumped with the small swells and dug our heels into the soft sand as we collected shells and enjoyed each others company. We spent a day without television or cable and enjoyed the privilege to just be. Be with one another, be with friends and family. That’s something so many people in this world would give their right arm for and it was ours for the taking. That day WE were the lucky ones.

After we had tired of the beach, we made our way over to the playground across the street. Allie and I sat at an empty pavilion, enjoying the shade while the children played in the mangroves and became pirates on the little tykes playground. It really was the perfect day.
