these two little cuties entertained themselves for quite some time. . .
I guarantee you the one in the orange shorts is weighted
down with at least ten pounds of treasures in his pockets. . .

and finally. . .the entire sand bar is exposed. . .
quite the little exodus headed that direction.
Did I feel the need to walk over there?
Noooooo. . .no at all. . .
it’s the same rocks over there that it is over here. . .
but I sure liked watching everyone else do it. . .
