The theme for this week is salty, and I chose this picture because the 35 mm camera was accidentally dropped into the Gulf of Mexico after it was taken, so it was “salted” with salt water. 😀 I was amazed that it came out at all.
We were in Corpus Christi, Texas, for a family reunion about 18 or so years ago, and made a visit to Padre Island. I lived in Corpus Christi as a kid, and I had forgotten how much I missed the water til I saw it again. We used to go to the island all the time when I was growing up. I loved that it had sand dunes as far as the eye could see.
This is my middle son, Jason, again. He loved the water and kept crawling right toward it — which is why I think my hand is there right above him, to grab him if he took off again. He always loved water of any kind when he was young — he’d play in the tub for an hour. Sometimes I’d let him fill up the sink and he’d spend all kinds of time there playing with toys. Maybe that’s why he keeps bugging us about getting a swimming pool……. 🙂
