The beach, part 6

Thursday was particularly memorable for a couple of reasons: first, we had our annual pirate treasure hunt: LOML and L had apparently heard rumours of a pirate treasure being buried on the beach, and B and Boo and Skibo immediately searched for maps, fortunately finding three pieces, one each (looking suspiciously like parchment on which bread might have been baked a day earlier): and so we all followed the maps to the beach.

And when I say all, we had two extra friends in tow: K&B had spent the summer at a nearby cancer facility, where he was undergoing radiation, chemo and other therapies: and we thought it would be good for both of them to get away: I think that they loved the treasure hunt, and also the fact that they ran into friends they hadn't seen in ages as soon as they got to the beach.

Later on K&B took us out to dinner, and so we enjoyed our third meal in two days at the same restaurant. And a good meal it was too.

Yours, loving silly traditions,

It sounds like a great tradition, even better when you can share it with friends.
