A Very Typical Mathews Scene
This is it. Beautiful and serene.
Last Saturday my son and I went down Haven Beach, home of the infamous ghosts. (Note: "Down Haven Beach" is Mathews speak for we went TO the beach. We did not actually drive DOWN the beach, we just drove TO it. But most places around here start with "down." Like "down New Point," or "down Port Haywood." I suppose this is because we're near about underwater most times, so we're actually going below sea level, i.e. DOWN.)
I didn't see any ghosts that day and was very disappointed.
See that green squiggly stuff in the foreground? (Second note: Green Squiggly Stuff is a technical term I learned in Mrs. Gibbs 9th grade Earth Science class. I've got a memory like a steel trap. Or a sieve. You be the judge.) Anyway, back to the green squiggly stuff.
My son and I were shocked to see what appeared to be BUFFALO washed up on the beach behind the scene shown above. Upon closer inspection, we discovered the buffalo-like mounds were the dried up green squiggly stuff. I guess with that bad storm we had a week or so ago, all the dried up green stuff turned brown and got mushed into buffalo-like clumps. (Third note: "got mushed" is just plain wrong. No two ways about it.)
