Yes. That is a child buried in sand. It's one of the boys. It looks way more ominous than it was...but he was buried with only his head above the sand. With a hat. ya gonna get all that sand off? I have the trick! 

First let me tell you about the day at Crescent Beach on Sunday. Gorgeous day, but my was cold near that water. And the water itself? Puh-leeze. You couldn't pay me to go in that water! It was so cold that I was...uh, pardon the expression, nipping out. All I could think was. "There are children here! I'm pornographic!"

Right. Like I'm gonna take a picture of that!

Anyway, it was very nice at the beach and apparently I wasn't the only one with the idea.

Okay, okay. I won't bore you with my lovely time at the beach anymore. I won't even tell you about the rousing game of football. On to the trick to get sand off!


Yup. It's as simple as baby powder. You can wipe and wipe and wipe, and yet there is ALWAYS sand! But if you put a little baby powder on the area, viola! Gone! And you smell good too. Okay, actually, I loathe the smell of baby powder, but it beats smelling like low tide.

Try it next time you want to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at the beach that doesn't crunch. You'll thank me!
