The builders on the new house next door arrived around 7am. Mostly loud trucks but the occasional buzzsaw was heard.
Another day at the beach. We had waffles for breakfast.
I was left at the house with my SIL and niece while the others went into town. They stopped at a playground and a fish market. At the fish market they bought some shrimp (supposedly for fishing) and some clams. Shocker of all shockers, they went through the McDonald's drive-thru where my FIL got coffee and MIL got sweet tea. The boys only got water but I think that's all they were allowed to have from the menu.
When they got back we had lunch. Mostly leftovers. We had steamed clams and my BIL made over a pound of shrimp which my nephews mostly ate. I went down to the beach to read. My BIL and nephews fished and body surfed. Before I left because the flies got to be too much, my oldest nephew caught some kind of spotted fish. SIL was told by a fisherman that the flies were blown in from the bay.
I took a bath, napped and got up to make dinner. Mild Italian Sausage White Bean Soup and Apple Crisp for dessert. Apparently neither of the boys is crazy about soup. But I scored points for the apple crisp. I've given the recipe to my SIL since even my BIL liked it.
While I was browning the Italian Sausage, I asked my oldest nephew who was on the salt and pepper shakers. He said, "Roy Rogers." I asked, "Do you know what his horse was named?" He said, "No." I said, "Well, some people would tell you it's Tony the Horse but his name was Trigger." My nephew laughed and knew who I was talking about. He said, "You can't trust your Poppa but you can always trust your Aunt Amber. She doesn't lie." Well, he knows I don't tease them like my FIL. :)
My MIL and I cleaned up, my FIL read, and the rest went for a walk on the beach. After the boys were put to bed, I read while the rest of the adults watched one of the discs for Blue Planet. Done at 10pm they went upstairs to bed.
I snuck a bag of popcorn and set the dishwasher to run.
