Starfish at Oualie


Julian found this starfish yesterday at Oualie. It was one of the smaller starfish out there that day. We have been told that in the morning the starfish are out of the water up on the beach sunning themselves so one of these days we need to get over there to catch them in the act. The last two days have been really nice here. Saturday was actually drier than it has been here in months! The humidity crept back up since then but I suspect that things are going to start cooling down soon. I wonder if we will get the rains that we got last year. Last years rainfall measured 84.4 inches. 35 of those inches were dumped in October and November. It was crazy. Anyway, before I start worrying about that I'll just concentrate on how nice it has been here the past few days. At Oualie on Sat and Sun it was so beautiful. The water was like glass. It was so warm and still it was like swimming in a pool. Julian and I did some laps out by the buoys. I towed Julian on his boogie board while he paddled and kicked and occasionally dove down for starfish. It was a nice day. We eventually met up with some friends and Julian played with a girl his age named Allie who seems to be a good match for him. They had a great time making sand castles and playing pirate.

    Anyway, looks like you are having a great time! Michaila saw Julian's pic and said, "Oh, he found a starfish"!

    Wish we could be there. (Although U@ was pretty kick***)
