At the Jersey Shore

On Friday, Sophie came for an overnight. After breakfast–(pancakes in whatever shape she wants; this time it was dolphins)–we took a day-trip to our Jersey Shore bungalow, located on a barrier island between the ocean & bay. Gorgeous day, as you can see. The first pic needs no explanation. However, here’s the scoop re the second pic: occasionally at high tide, especially in the Fall, the water from the bay comes up through the storm sewer at the end of our driveway. Seeing it, Sophie spontaneously went into the house, returned with the bowl in which she placed alyssum blossoms & petals from the geranium that were still in bloom in the pot on the bulkhead and put them in the bowl, which she carried to the end of our driveway. Then she walked along the wall around the neighbor’s flower garden, and sprinkled the flowers on the water. Linda told her it was a good idea ’cause the water was looking “kind of scuzzy.”
