The Tightrope Walker Falls: 1889 – 1900
4 months ago
Jennifer and me floating out a ways from the shore on vacation in Destin, FL. Photo by my daughter. She and her friend later joined us out past where the waves broke, where they only swelled. I had my panama hat, Jennifer her visor. I could look down and see the sandy bottom a few clear feet beneath us, though over our head this far out. The gulf coast is gorgeous here with aqua and emerald waters slowly fading to deep blue out beyond where our floats went. Things could be tougher, right? The only problem was we did not have beers out there with us.
