Rough Seas Ahead

For the past two days two red flags have flown over the beaches here in Florida. That means the beaches are closed to swimmers because of dangerous conditions. Hurricane Dolly stirred up the Gulf of Mexico and the waves are about 4 to 5 feet. The problem isn't necessarily the waves, it's the rip current. Today a 60 year old man from Florida drowned after being caught in the rip current. Six people had to be rescued. That news pretty much stopped the boys from asking why they couldn't go into the water. Very sad.

If the boats are running, tomorrow we're going to go to Shell Island. Wheee!
