I’ve been away from the computer the last few days. Actually, Friday through Monday, but I was burned out.
Took the family on a trip to San Onofre. We stayed at Camp Pendleton. They have a couple camp sites there.
It was a good trip, all except on Sunday, my son and I were pulled out by a rip tide.
At first, I got to shore, turned around and saw that my son (9) was going the wrong way. I jumped back in and swam after him. I finally caught up to him and grabbed ahold of him. I told him, “what ever happens, do not let go of that board!” He had his boogie board and I had mine, which in my opinion, saved our asses. God was definately watching out for us.
It took me 20 minutes of swimming and pulling my son along, who helped with kicking, to get to shore. There were two other people stuck in this rip tide as well. One fat lady that had no floatation device, and her son, who had a floatation device.
As soon as my son and I got to shore, three lifeguards jumped in and pulled them both to shore.
After that workout, I had had enough for one day.
We went back the next day and moved further down the beach to a better area. My son and I jumped right in and proceeded to boogie the waves. He did really well. The three years of swimming lessons for my son paid for themselves this weekend, in my opinion. He was treading the waves like a champ.
I’ll get back into beating on the politics and stuff of the day shortly.
Don’t even get me started on the Supreme Circus of the United States.
That is all.
