We heard there was a Fish Friday night at the Copper and Lumber on the Dockyard and thought it would be a perfect valentine supper.We'd met two couples earlier, Paul and Sue ...
... cooler and we spent the morning lounging on a deserted strip of beach. I swam along the shore, collected seashells and cleaned the beach of it's trash while the boys lounged in the tender.
