Have you ever wanted something so much, you were willing to risk about anything to get it? Well let me tell you a quick tale about hot summer fun on the beach in Florida.
It was the year Hurricane Andrew was headed to Miami and we were headed to Ft. Walton Beach, a permanent move. We knew very little about hurricanes, the ocean, or anything tropical. Driving there, we noticed all the cars were headed west and we were the only ones headed east. I remember laughing and saying maybe we should turn around, but no, Florida was where we were headed, and by darn, Florida was where we would end up at.
We were lucky that we didn't hit the hurricane, but settled in a nice little area in the panhandle. I think that was in August.
By December, even though most Floridians were wearing jackets, we were still wearing shorts and burning up.
We decided to go for a swim in the Gulf Coast waters. Yes, even in December, it was still hot enough to get in the water.
Hubby, being a big, brave man, dived into the water and took off. He was far enough out that I could hear what he was shouting at me, but I knew something was terribly wrong, because he was swimming like a mad man toward me. I swear, I thought he was going to walk on water for a few minutes there.
He finally got close enough I could hear him shouting, "Shark! Shark! Get out of the water!"
I barely had one foot in the ocean. I was too smart to jump in and just take off like a frightened rabbit.
Still I jumped back when I saw two fins headed straight toward us (by this time the hubs had reached me).
I started laughing when I saw the *sea monsters*. Two little baby dolphins had chased hubby all the way back to the chore. They zipped by us so fat. I know they were laughing at hubby. I was.
So there's just one of my tales about us and the hot summer fun in Florida.
