More From the Weekend

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, this weekend was fabulous.

In addition to the fun at the beach, 
there was lots of relaxing
in my yard by the creek.

Queens Creek was filled with boaters
taking advantage of the gorgeous weather.

Even our neighbors were out in kayaks.

In addition to the typical Memorial Day scenes like boats and beaches,
there were several highly unusual sightings.

While I was lounging creekside with my
Sudoku book and wine
I noticed something up in the air flying in my direction.

I can't say this is something you see every day.

There is a person dangling from this contraption.
It's like a parasail with an engine.
He was way up in the air.  I mean way up.
(Apologies for the poor quality of the photo.)

Yes, the weekend was full of the usual....

and the very unusual.

This rare aquatic creature was spotted
 frolicking in the Chesapeake Bay.

There's a person dangling from this contraption also.

Deltaville Jamie migrated south for the weekend
and was able to join me for an afternoon
at the beach.

She went out so far into the bay,
she joked that she was almost at Tangier Island.

After the non-stop 4 day working Memorial day weekend that I had to work, today I am going to the beach and just chill, my sisters are down for a couple of days so it will be nice to catch up with them. I am a little concerned to see MY beach though. The new casino is open now and I wonder how much of MY beach they are claiming as their own. I heard that Vermont Ave is still untouched. thank the Lord! Enjoy your week off, mine comes in a couple!

I want a ducky float! And I want to float on my ducky next to an empty beach like that... and then come home to a lawn chair and a glass of wine overlooking the river. Boy oh boy you were living the good life this weekend.

I don't think I've ever seen a beach that wasn't overflowing with people on Memorial Day. What a paradise.

Oh good Lord! I think 20 more minutes of walking/floating and I would have been to the Eastern Shore of VA. It was a glorious weekend- absolutely perfect weather! Can't wait to get down there again!
