Saturday morning we went out for breakfast and then down to our favorite beach, Whitney Beach better known as Beer Can Island.
Click the link for previous post on this beach.
We never know what we will find due to weather that changes it from month to month. We stepped out on the beach where Bob is standing and below is the path to Beer Can Island UNDER WATER due to high tide.
MadSnapper whined "we can't get there, the tide is in, wahhhhhh and you KNOW I am not wading in water that I can't see what is there, beside my capris will get wet.
Bob says " follow me, see that little path? and takes off through the mangroves.
I follow whining " it will not take us there, you are going the wrong way.."
Bob says "come ON it will take us there ( note he is carrying my shoes for me, so i can madly snap"
Bob says "watch out, sharp stick here, and SEEEEEE, there is the water, we are almost there.
Just a little further he says to the gasping staggering madly snapping snapper...
See: I told you it would take us to the island.
And there it was, our most favorite beach. Beer Can Island on Longboat Key.
Snapper yells "do NOT walk out to the end of that tree" he was, he really was...
UPDATE 7:45 AM Sunday.
Please pray for the family of a 6 year old boy that drowned at this beach yesterday after we left. Pray they will find his body today. He was swept away in the rip currents from the other side of the pass and towards this beach.
