Busy vacation

It is a myth. Vacations are not about resting. It is a time to do other things. It is the old adage: a change is as good as a rest.
Yesterday was a perfect example. The day began with Emily going off to camp. She had a great day painting, doing paper mache, and clay creatures. The theme is Under the Sea. Emily is working on a paper mache octopus and painted an undersea landcape. She made a snail out of clay. She also made a clay cinnamon bun. Food is never far from her mind.
After camp, we went to the beach for a swim. There was a wicked algea bloom. It was not very nice. The pristeen beaches we see in the vacation brochures are not the same ones we see when you arrive. Emily got algea everywhere. When she showered afterwards, the algea was inside her bathing suit. It filled every crack in her body. I felt for her.
Michele and I spent the day shopping. Having been so busy last week finishing up school and working at the garden centre over the long weekend, this was the first opportunity to get groceries.
We also took the chance to buy Michele a new set of dishes she has eyed for the last few months. She is really pleased. They are square. They cool.

If you have a digital camera, send me an email of Michele's new dishes. Emily's algae episode sounds icky to say the least. What has happened to our world?
