Our World Tuesday: The Beach
Adella and I have spent the past several days on Topsail. We celebrated Christmas a week early so that we could hit the road and enjoy the beach and trade in the jail stripes of public education for these dune fence stripes. She brought so much homework, though, that we spent many an hour with her working on that. One big AP history project took about 25 hours. It was crazy. I was the sous chef, printing pictures for the timeline and getting out the markers for her and making very insightful commentary on the hair styles of the Forgettable Presidents for her. (In short: there were many, many ways to do a comb-over in the 19th century. I am almost sorry I missed it.)
Christmas night we drove around to enjoy the nautical Christmas decorations. These pelicans are among my favorite. They perch atop a little pedestrian bridge in Surf City. Later that evening, I assigned myself a little pelican homework and discovered the movie Pelican Dreams, which I am intent on seeing somehow. Dudes have been around for 30 million years, and they deserve a little consideration.
The other morning, Adella and I got up with the sun to go for a walk. She doesn't talk too much, and I like that a lot in a walking companion. She's a great kid, and she likes to photograph Topsail, too. How not to?
