This past summer Booh and I headed to the Jersey shore for a few days. Her grandfather tried to teach her to body surf with a boogie board. She was a bit hesitant at first but once she got out there she let him set her up to catch the next wave. She giggled when the wave caught her board and started to carry her towards to shore … but then she wiped out and went head over heals, getting water up her nose and sand in her teeth. When she came up and got her footing she marched out of the water, mad as a wet hen, leaving her boogie board behind and blowing water out of her nose.
She kept to the tidal pools after that. They were warmer, no waves and shallow, all things safe.
