Our older daughter Sarah and my 2 ½ year old grandson Calvin were able to come down and join us at the beach for a few days for a well needed mind flushing time of R&R. Calvin was not so hip on the ocean and wanted nothing to do with the scary waves. He was particularly attracted to the beach crabs and loved covering himself with the sticky sand and then getting it all over your nice clean towel, drink and chair. We stayed at a house right on the (New Smyrna) beach and even though we had some rain showers, some of the sunrises were spectacular. Our favorite times were the evening walks on the beach after dinner. Sarah’s real estate career is taking off while her husband Sonny is enjoying his role as a construction project manager and they’re in the process of buying their first home in North Georgia.
