A Day With Peach At The Beach (#125)

I went to the beach. Just walked across the little country road from the park where I work and live (for the summer) and there I was: at Caspar Beach. Tucked into a comfortable little cove on the north coast of California.

It was a fine sunny day. I set out my beach chair and sat down. Kicking off my sheepskin boots, I wiggled my toes into the soft warm sand.

With me I had a good old lazy summer day mystery novel, my camera, a tiny beach umbrella, a tiny beach chair, and Peach.

I must interrupt my story here to inject something very important.  Peach started out life with me as “a peach.” Just another item of food that I bought at the nearby Safeway to enhance my daily living requirements, not meant to be anything special.

That was before I packed Peach with my other “day at the beach” necessities.  As the day progressed I imagined the peach with human qualities.   It was a good day.  A day with Peach at the Beach.

Peach on the beach as we enjoyed the sun and surf.

Peach with a better vantage point from the top of my knee.  FYI: It’s not easy balancing a peach on your knee.

Boy boogie boards the waves.  Dog takes man for walk. Peach watches calmly from the top of my boot.

Peach gets a closer look at some ocean flora that has washed ashore.

Washed out to sea by a rogue wave, a rescued but slightly battered Peach soaks up some rays.

What’s a day at the beach without writing your name in the sand!

The sun sets on Peach.

After this picture I sat watching the sunset and ate the peach thinking I’ll never forget my day with Peach.  By the way, it was the best peach I ever ate!

Joy!  Annie

    The first read of the day. The birds are singing, the cool air from the forest is making it’s way into my sleepy head. I am smiling because I can feel the beach
    and the whole story .What could be better than to start the day with Annie and Peach at the Beach?

    This is wonderful, Annie… slightly twisted, but great. Isn’t it kind of like Tom Hanks eating Wilson?

    How you find such joy and whimsy in the most unordinary of things continues to amaze me.

    You made me laugh, especially when poor peach was resting from its exhausting trauma. Poor thing, but how funny that must’ve been. I picture you scrambling about after that precious little guy. Like I said, you made me laugh…….

    You made me laugh, especially when poor peach was resting from its exhausting squabble with the sea. The little beach chair and umbrella were great fun too. Very cute!
