buzzing in the sun
we had an interesting day at the beach. miles and i took the kids to the beach with jen, ray and bodhi. we were having a fun time playing in the sand and water when all of a sudden a swarm of bees moved in. they must have been following their queen that decided to take up camp on the beach chair near us. i have never seen so many bees in all my life. it was crazy. they completely covered this beach chair and volley ball. i felt so bad for the owner of the chair. people were trying to help and managed to move some of their belongings out of the way but nobody wanted to touch the chair. everyone moved far away and the lifeguards roped off the area so nobody would get close to it. they had to call a beekeeper to come vacuum up the bees. how crazy.
the kids barley noticed the bees and continued to play in the water. we ended up having a great day. we went back to jen and rays house after the beach and they made us a fabulous dinner of veggie risotto. so delicious with a glass (or two) of white wine. mmmm.
