While Rosemary (Debi’s mother) was here, we went out to Fort de Soto beach.  As luck would have it, we arrived amidst storms all around the beach and stayed for a couple of hours without getting rained on.  Just as we left, the rain hit (you can see the clouds in the background).

I have a bunch of photos from the beach trip, but this first sequence seemed conducive to putting up here as a comic strip.  So, here’s Toren’s first dip in the ocean in comic form:

That's it? Thirty minute drive, shark risk, fish poop, a 1920s-style swimsuit, and all I get is 5 minutes of putting my feet in the water? Not cool...
