Living on an island with white sandy beaches has its advantages. On a sunny day, one often sees young men dressed like the guy to the left — boardshorts, leather bracelet, and flip-flops. No shirt, un-uh. Not allowed. I think he’s pretty hot, even with that ace bandage on his right wrist. (Skateboarding accident, perhaps?)
This will be a short post. In about 30 minutes, I’ll get in my car to drive 70 miles, to visit a loved one in an ALF. She’s getting up there in years and doesn’t do much, but I’m taking her out for lunch. This turns into an all-day affair because of the drive to and from, and the time involved in going to a restaurant. (She moves a bit slow, these days.) I don’t mind doing it.
I just returned from my morning walk on the beach. We’re having yet another beautiful day here on the island — sunny, still and about 76 degrees F. Today is Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year in terms of sunlight. I’ll try to make it home for sunset-watching with my neighbors this evening.
Have a nice Thursday, everyone.
