I live in St. Louis, MO, but my heart and soul hang out at the beach. I am a multi-genre, award winning writer and member of St. Louis Writer's Guild. I am a seasoned pre-k teacher, on line writing instructor, wife, mother, Nana to ten. Hopefully, something I say will make you smile, further your writing career, or inspire you to write from the heart, too.

The sea calls to me
In case you were wondering, we cruised to Cozumel and Progreso Mexico last week.
We toured the town of Progreso in a double-decker bus and saw all sorts of interesting sights.
I begged the bus driver to stop when we passed the beach. He said,"Only cinco minutes!"
That was enough for me to stroll the beach, sink my toes in the surf and collect a few shells.
Then we did a shore excursion. We swam with the sting rays and snorkeled in the sea.
Their barbs are cut periodically, but I still wasn't that thrilled. I mean kids have rapid growth spurts, and I thought it would have been my luck I'd feed a ray whose barb had regenerated. We held fish in our hands and put our hand on the bottom of the sea, then the sting rays swam over our outstretched hands and took the fish from us.
We also saw babies in an aquarium. They were so cute and felt like the softest velvet.
The tour guide warned us about the aggressive thieving pelican who tries to get a fish from tourists.
Bill is ever friendly and walked closer to make friends with this monster bird. It nearly snatched his nose off! You never saw a big man move so fast! I laughed and laughed. All in all, except for the last day, when Miami, Florida news reported the angry sea was tossing fifteen feet waves, and the ship was rocking, and the stage show canceled, we had an enjoyable vacation.
