What I have never attempted is to walk the beach from ding to dong. My beach buddy for the day was my friend Lil Shorty. We started out at Englewood Beach and walked north 3 miles to Blind Pass. We thought it would take us a few hours but it actually took us almost 5. Right out of the chute we found a super good patch of sharks teeth and hung out there for a while.

I'm 5'10 so I choose the water path. Lil Shorty announced to me she loves to rock climb & is very adept at it. Alrighty then...... She then proceeded to do her best mountain goat imitation and scurried right up the rocks. I thought for sure Lil Shorty would want to turn around but - no way! We set our faces to the brilliant sun & cool winds and keep going.
|Are we sure we want to keep going? What's up ahead?|
