The beach was really relaxing and beautiful. I took my book with me each day, but never bothered opening it. It was just a joy to doze on the chaise and not really do anything. I highly recommend it.
We ran into a convention of four hundred Red Hat Ladies. They were a hoot to see. My favorite was one of the husbands who was wearing a purple shirt and a red hat too, though no sparkles. I can totally tell I am going to fit right in with them in a couple of decades. 😀
