Myself, Rene & her aunt Stella went to the beach today...

...PIC: by me of a nice looking boat just a short distance off the beach...



To the beach,

Walked in the ocean,

Watched the boats,

They watched the hot men,

And I, well I had to restrain myself,

As Rene would have punched me times ten…


Yes the boats were out,

The kiddies did there shout,

Playing in the sand & chasing each other,

Each kid watched by everyone else’s mother…


The ocean so warm, though Rene thought not,

Dirty too but with nice sets of rolling in waves,

Perfect for body surfing, but board surfing no,

Too close together, and a little too much wind did blow,

Out of the southeast bringing in the warmer flow,

As well the sea weed, but fortunately no jelly fish,

Usually with warmer water adorn the beach they do…


All in all a wonderfully warm, sunny day,

We all got some sun, a burn on my back,

For nothing more did we at all lack,

Then for lunch went we, then ice cream,

Finally to leave in the never ending traffic stream…

I see no string bikinis yet, PeeWee want some pictures (not of boats!) to hide in the mountain cave of his, my pictures of Swedish nurses were caught by Mean Tall Woman and our brother is in the dog-house, literally!
