Sparky was DYING to get in the water and ride the waves again...With two sets of adult children coming a week apart and soon, Sparky and Eldo decided to go visit a surf shop in the area, to shop for some BOOGIE boards...the boards that are sort of about the size of a half surfboard. You use them to ride the waves....Sparky AND Eldo are going to have some fun with the boogie board tomorrow, if the weather is good. These guys are having just too much fun!
|Skim board--throw it alongside the waves at the shoreline and jump on and then try to do tricks!|
We headed over to a beach on the Barrier Island/Vero Beach area right beside the Disney Vero Beach Hotel. We think it was called Wabasso Beach, but we're not sure. It's a FREE city beach, no charge, tiny parking lot and lifeguarded. Once we get the boogie board to the beach, Sparky wants a LIFEGUARDED beach and lots of people around in case we get into trouble. Sparky wants a lifeguard in serious, buff shape in case SHE gets into trouble. This one will do!
|Gotta be in shape to rescue people!|
Some big waves......
A group of kids bringing jelly fish/Man-O-War animals on their "jai alai" sticks to the guards' attention....It appeared like villagers bringing an offering to their native chief by the way it went down. He's standing up on his platform (see above photo of buff lifeguard). He smiled with approval, and gave them the flag for the flagpole.
Sparky got stung by a jellyfish/Man-O-War back in high school and she STILL remembers how painful it was!
It was another beautiful day at the beach on the Atlantic Ocean side!
