SIC beaches

I walked onto the beach the other day

After setting up my chair

I went over to one of the guys

I have met on the beach

Over the past couple of years

 

It was the 1st time I have seen him

On the beach this year

 

I said…

It’s good to see you again

Are you ready for

Another great summer…

 

At that point

I felt a little embarrassed

I stopped and said…

 

I’m sorry…

But I forget your first name

I’m George Hutch

 

He just chuckled and said…

 

Just call me JC

That’s always easy to remember

 

We got into some small talk

And then he started talking about the beach…

 

The beach is already getting a little crowded…

I can’t believe it…

People are just plopping down

Sitting on top of each other…

 

Look at all the beach over there

 

And those people going into the water…

The life guards are 2 blocks away…

 

What are they thinking…

They are putting other people at risk…

 

I casually said…

I think you will like the book I just wrote…

 

You wrote a book…

What’s the title…

 

Beach Etiquette…

 

He turns to his wife…

 

Hey KC…

Come over here

 

Remember that book you just bought me…

 

Beach Etiquette

 

Here’s the guy who wrote it

 

I love that book

I was always thinking I should write a book about

Beach Etiquette

 

You did a good job

 

I was sitting drinking my coffee the other day

And I read a couple of chapters…

 

I found myself laughing

It’s pretty funny…

 

I love the art work

 

Wow…

How about that…

 

It is a small world after all…

My First Read

June 18, 2018

This week I was asked by my grandson G V
To read Beach Etiquette to his first-grade class

Being my first reading…
I wasn’t shore how I would approach it
But I felt safe since I was around children

Their expectations would not be too high

I started out by asking
How many schools days were left…

They all shouted…
8 more days….

I then asked what is everyone’s’ plans for the summer…
Is anyone going to the shore…
Their hands started going up
I went thru every student
Where are you going
What will you be doing

For those heading to the shore
I asked them what they liked about the shore

I love going crabbing
I like running into the water
I like jumping the waves
Boogieboarding

They went on and on for a few minutes
Then the teacher finally says…
Ok…
Why don’t we let Mr Hutchinson read his book…

They were all excited…
I read 3 chapters…

Chapter 5…The Passing Lane
About running on the beach

Chapter 6…Having a catch
Reliving the days of playing ball on the beach

Chapter 8…Shake…Shake…Shake
About the hazards of being down wind
Of someone shaking their blanket

The kids loved it…
I received a standing ovation
G V came running up and hugged me
A little girl came running up and said
I want to hug you too…

It was so cute and…
An experience I will treasure

This book is written for anyone
Who likes or enjoys a day on the beach

To feel the sun
Listen to the waves
A feeling of serenity comes over you

I have many memories of
Growing up at the beach

I often stand there
I look around
I take a deep breath and
I am transported to a different time

I can still see people I was growing up with
We were hanging on the beach
Laughing… joking… doing silly stuff
Grabbing our surf boards and darting into the ocean
Playing run the bases or tackle football on the beach

Where did the time go…
I don’t know…
But the memories live on within me

No matter what beach you go to
With a little Beach Etiquette
We will preserve its beauty and pay it forward

If April showers

 

 

Bring May flowers

 

 

Then…

 

 

What do May showers bring?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seems that Spring….

 

 

 

Came a little early

 

 

 

 

 

This year

 

 

 

 

 

We were busy having

 

 

80 to 90 degree days

 

 

 

 

 

Back in March

 

 

 

 

 

Even faked out the

 

 

Flowers and trees

 

 

 

 

I saw buds coming up…..

 

 

 

Out of the ground

 

 

 

And

 

 

Trees beginning to bloom

 

 

 

 

 

Then came April….

 

 

 

Cold temperatures

 

 

 

A few overnight freeze warnings…

 

 

 

 

Thrown in…

 

 

 

 

 

For good measure

 

 

 

 

 

No Rain

 

 

 

 

 

 

I remember running thru the park

 

 

 

 

I overheard the trees

 

Talking to the plants

 

 

 

 

 

What’s going on with this weather?

 

 

 

First they tell us it is ok to bloom

 

 

 

 

Then they throw……

 

 

 

Cold temperatures at us

 

 

 

 

What are these human’s doing?

 

 

 

 

Do you think they know?

 

 

Or

 

 

Is it time for us

 

 

 

To talk to….

 

 

 

 

The big Guy up there?

 

 

 

 

I’m just telling you

 

 

What I heard

 

 

I am not revealing…….

 

 

 

My sources

 

 

 

 

Well…..

 

 

 

 

 

We got 15 days

 

 

Till…

 

 

 

Memorial Day weekend begins

 

 

 

The focus will soon be on

 

 

 

The summer and

 

 

 

Heading for the…..

 

 

 

Shore

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I guess we had a glimpse of spring

 

 

 

Back in March

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do the waves look?
