This morning dawned – and has remained – gray and rainy, so when I dove into my shoebox-of-photos this morning looking for a Wayback Wednesday picture, I was looking for something that would suggest sun and warmth. I think this picture of me fearlessly wandering into the ocean at about the age of three fits the bill:
Far and away, the best thing about this photo is the fact that the two men chatting in the corner of the photo – the ones who appear to have no involvement whatsoever with me – are my dad and uncle. I am walking into the surf and no one seems to be noticing. It’s fairly safe to assume that my mom and aunt are somewhere just outside the frame actually paying attention, but that’s not the story this picture tells. I look like a totally unguarded child about to get into a mess of trouble.
However, this is what comes next:
Yup. Adorable splashing in the surf with my cousin Susan. Tragedy averted!
