A beach vacation must include time at a beach by definition. This year the Fairegarden clan met up in South Carolina at Isle Of Palms, just outside Charleston. Offspring of offspring Semi, little almost four year old LTB was full of excitement about the whole affair. As luck would have it, he suffered a broken foot while climbing some rocks just days before the trip. With foot in cast, he awaits the next righteous wave on his boogie board. While the beach is the draw, the swimming pool at the rental house was used even more. LTB joined cousins MA and GA, offspring of Chickenpoet for a dip. In Spiderman flotation suit and waterproof red cast on his foot self decorated with a Spiderman web design, LTB begins a series of jumps. He makes sure the camera is focused on him. Well of course it is. The performance begins with the standard aeroplane arm extension. Arms up, eyes closed and a Yeeeehawwww. Oooh, good distance on this one. Knee bent, toe perfectly pointed as The Financier offers a softer landing spot. With a smile, youthful abandon and water dripping from the toe of the cast, LTB displays his skydiving technique. Grand finale of the dead man fall ends the show. Just to keep this post garden oriented, sort of, the above shot was taken of the dunes along the path from the house to the ocean. There were beautiful yellow flowers blooming and the sea oats waving amongst the grasses. This scene never failed to delight each day as the pilgrimage was made to the water.
