The Veaches invaded the South Carolina beaches yesterday.
Dateline DeBourdieu Colony: my cousins came to visit and had a blast playing in the surf at the beach. The boys had never been to the beach yet and so, the waves were a new experience.
While the elder of the brothers was brave and fearless, hanging onto Cousin Don for support in some of the larger breakers, the younger one stayed by mommy to keep him safe from the unknown terrors the sea may hold in store.
That lasted for all of five seconds and then the intrepid explorers struck out on their own, exploring the tidal pool and frolicking in the waves. It was a splendid introduction with only a couple bumps as the boys found the raw power of water could (quite literally) sweep you off your feet!
Wherever you are today, I hope that your day is going swimmingly!
