Today after Shabbat service I went down to the beach to do a little reading. It is sunny outside, but still a bit chilly (only 18° C…64° F) I wore pants, a t-shirt and a sweatshirt with flip-flops. As I was sitting there reading, I looked around me and saw all sorts of CRAZY people in bikini’s and swimsuits. There were even some in the water!!!
There I was all bundled up in my blanket, not even very warm to tell the truth, and people were wearing practically nothing! I remembered back to when I was younger, growing up in Michigan, when I actually was one of those CRAZY people. It would hit the 60’s and we’d be laying out, trying to get some sun. Man, how times have changed. I guess living in tropical and desert areas for the past 8 years has thinned my blood beyond recognition. I barely see that Michigan girl at all…she is practically non-existent. If I’m gonna get in the water, or be laying out now it needs to AT LEAST be in the 80’s, 90’s preferably. I’m ready for the warmer weather….bring on the heat!
