The Beach in December

Ahhh, smell that ocean air. This was the scene at New Smyrna Beach at 11 today. A few cyclists, some snowbirds down for the winter, and us. Storms were forecast, but because it was such an unusually warm day (high of 81), I decided to risk it. And what a fine day it turned out to be!


Not hot enough to bother with the beach umbrella, though the water was quite cold. We built some sand castles, played with water in the sand pails, and kicked the ball around. All the little old ladies thought he was adorable.


Liam was such a good boy, playing quietly on his own, then playing catch with me. I’m usually begging him to get in the water, which leads to much whining, so it was nice not to bother with that. Later in the afternoon it started to cloud up, so we headed to Norwoods for their famous coconut shrimp. Liam enjoyed their bread and chocolate milk. On the way home, we heard on the radio that New Smyrna was under a tornado warning. We got out of there just in time! It’s weird to live somewhere that tornadoes can strike in the winter. Though it’s also weird to go to the beach in December. A good kind of weird.
