Sisters on the Beach

50 Tosses

Dee Dee definitely channels her great grandmother Dyna when it comes to swimming. Like Dyna, Dee Dee will retrieve the bumper until she drops – if we let her. Her dad decided 50 tosses is about her limit. Occasionally, she will start to slow down sooner.

But we’re pretty sure that most days, whether it’s 50 or 500 tosses, Dee Dee will keep retrieving.

The Next Generation

As the elder statesmen of the Red Head crew, Dylan has been passing along his coconut prowess to Dora. She has been a willing student.

Of course, she also has to add her own special take on coconut play. Once Dora found the small nut in the center, she went all badass on it. Or as her Dad stated, “Psycho, crazy.”

You can judge for yourself.

Dora kept it up for about 30 minutes, until the surf started to breach her hole to China. Hey, coconuts, you’d better watch your step!

Kokonut King

When it comes to coconuts, Dylan is the king. Let him show you how it’s done.

A Wolf?

Or just Dee Dee on the chase for the bumper? You decide.

Playing in the Shallows

It was quite windy on the east side of the island this morning, so the Red Head crew decided to go back to Bardot Beach on the west side. The water was flat calm.

After a few bumper tosses, Dad noticed some large stingrays gathering close to shore. You can see one in the upper right of the above picture. We weren’t afraid of the stingrays, but were afraid of what the crew might do if they saw them.

We decided to simply toss the bumper closer to shore were it was quite shallow. Dee Dee and Dora still had a great time.

That was until Dad spotted a shark circling. When you have crew members this sweet, you don’t want to take any chances. Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora took an early walk back home.

Drink n’ Drift

Last night, Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora went on a Drink n’ Drift. On previous trips to a Great Harbour Cay, it was one of Dylan and Dee Dee’s favorite events.

It was Dora’s first Drink n’ Drift. She was very excited, especially when she saw her new best friend, Diane, two dinghies over. But she did eventually settle down.

As for Dylan, he handled it like the experienced cruiser that he is.

Sweet Dylan

Dee Dee and Dora seem to dominate the kids’ blog. It’s always the bad child who gets the limelight.

Dylan is the good child and loves his beach time too.

Of course, being the senior member of the crew, he likes a good nap afterwards. What a good boy!

One Year

One year ago Dylan and Dee Dee set out on their 6:30 am walk around the neighborhood in Panama City Beach. They started their walk as a crew of two but finished it as a crew of three. That morning Dora came into our lives. Nothing has been the same…W…
