Yesterday, after our adventure with the grumpy 11 year old, and after our encounter with the crabby counter person, we went to the lake to hang out for a while. We went to Barcelona beach because it was close and because it is where you can find lots and lots of beach glass.
William was washing away his whines in the waves while I looked for flat and rounded stones to do a craft with Iris when next I go. Tim was sitting on the beach staring out at the horizon. It was very sunny and the light was glistening off the water.
"Look at that," Tim said, pointing far out in the water. I looked. "See that light? I wonder what that is. It's awfully bright, to be able to see it clear back here."
I watched. "That is strange. It seems a lot brighter that the sunlight reflecting off the water."
We watched it for some time.
When we left the beach, we heard that someone had fallen off a fishing boat in the water off Barcelona Beach and never resurfaced.
