I joined my parents in Ocean Park on a stunning, warm day on the Washington coast. We took their new pup Mad (he's actually really sweet) Max to the beach for a walk and we kicked off our shoes to enjoy the sand and surf. There, I found a beautiful but sand-covered dragonfly on the ground and scooped it up in my hands. Hoping to free it from the caked on sand I borrowed some water from Max's supply and dribbled it over the poor little insect before placing it on a plant up near the dunes. Who knows if it made it but I had to try.
A little later in the afternoon my brother Joseph, sis-in-law Sonya and my nephews joined us for dinner and some sandy playtime in the front yard before heading for bed early before tomorrow's fishing trip.
