Kent's Here!

Beautiful is ecstatic. Her "baby," her youngest child, Kent is here. She has been looking forward all winter to his visit. Well, so have I. Here they are on the pier at Rockport Beach. Kent was totally fascinated by even the smallest of creatures he espied in and along the water's edge. He nearly, but not quite, fell in when he slipped on a rock attempting to grasp a shell that contained a tiny hermit crab. "Look! he exclaimed as he held the object in front of his mother's face. "See the little leggies?!" She recoiled, and I smiled, for he is his mother's son. Wherever did he hear the word "leggies"? One guess.

Here was a beautiful little jellyfish going about its business. It worked the water around these mossy stones, giving me several opportunities to get a snapshot. This one is the best, even with the patch of bubbles riding over the top of the critter.

Later we all had much too much very good lunch at Jaliscos. It is going to be a great seven days!
