Day 4.202: Beach rescue
We packed up camp this morning and went down to the beach. It was not a long journey - about half a mile across the state park. We had the sand to ourselves when we got there although a few other people arrived once the lifeguards 'opened' the beach.
While we were swimming, Exile #4 called me over to show me a butterfly floating on the surface. It turned out to be alive but injured. We brought it to dry land, but I suspect its flying days were already behind it either way.
The rest of our short beach visit were filled with normal lake-beach summer activities but all too soon it was time to leave and head home.
By the way, I have updated the picture from yesterday and the text-formatting from the last two days. Emailing in posts from my phone is a great option to have - but a little basic.
