When we got to the other side of rock jetty my brother decided we should go on over to the beach on the other side of these dunes. he was like, it's right over this hill guys come on, and he ran off. my mom and i slogged through the deep sand to get to the beach, surprised by a new hill after each dune that crested. we finally got there and i looked out over the ocean and i saw huge black storm cloud. oh geez. so my mom took a quick dip in the ocean to cool off and we headed back just as the rain started. we had the mile of big rocks to cross in front of us, and now they were wet rocks and we were being pelted by rain. then the thunder started and mom told us to climb down into the rocks. when that stopped we resumed our climb and jump and leap and crawl and walk and finally made it, just as the rain stopped. it was quite a harrowing adventure and i was so proud of my mama :)
Today I ran FIVE MILES!!! I am totally amazed I didn't realize it was that far until I googled it when i got back here. that's pretty fricken sweet. I also worked on the book. My mom is taking a nap and after that I think we should be headed to a beach for some late afternoon/evening swimming. and i wanna get frozen yogurt. my (2nd eldest) sister laura and her bf dave are here too which is nice :)
