My Sea Side Rendevous

There's been some mentioning of a little eco friendly dive upon the sea shore down in South America. On this lovely out of the way enchanted isle, I'd sit with a local child on my lap, tenderly brushing and braiding her hair. She'd lean over to kiss me softly upon the cheek and then run down the beach to join all her friends. Not only would I be the local hairdresser, but of course the beaches' only English teacher.

After a morning of learning the ABC's and writing our pen pals in Australia, we'd take recess on the beach riding beautiful horses with mane long and flowing. My daughter Annie would be the caretaker of the horses in between fashioning solar panels and wind mills to make our eco site even more friendly.

My Ontario friend would be smiling and pouring me a mimosa as we both realized a long time dream to be waist deep in the warm Pacific Currents.

Is that real!? That picture is beautiful. See, my Spanish would help you again (except I'd still get made fun of for my Castilian accenting). I think you guys should spring for wind since there's always a nice sea breeze; something about wind turbines is so beautiful.

I just have to point this out since you mentioned ABC's and English teaching, but you used the wrong "mane" in reference to the beautiful flowing hair of a horse. HA! Score 1 for me! ^__^

PS: I'll make sure to take lots of jealousy-inspiring pictures when I go to Australia next summer! :P

Tee Hee...Jovan, did use the wrong mane--oh bother!

I'm thinking you need a bit of adult supervision on that Australian trip of yours...ya know?

Um excuse me, but I AM an adult, MOTHER! :P

Why were you up so early, missy? Do I have to make you stop daydreaming about paradise so you can sleep at night? Oh that's right. You live in Fart Worth, lol. Understandable. Ha!

I can't believe you changed it!!! I feel badly now!!! I'm also happy you corrected it because it might have haunted my dreams forever...

No, No...I'm a big fan of constructive criticism!
