Well, maybe just a shark tale!
The highlight of the First Annual Kenju Family North Myrtle Beach Trip, at least for this grandson, was catching a baby shark. He had fished on a pier all day with his aunt and caught nothing, so he went out that night about 9pm on the beach, and soon reeled in the shark. We all decided we would not be wading in the water after dark! The baby was set free soon after the pics were taken, and I hope he remembers our kindness if he ever comes within 50 yards of us again.
This 13-year-old has a 'summer romance' story as well. Early in the week he and his brother played ping pong with another family who had a daughter about ten. On our last day there, the grandmother approached our tent on the beach and said....."We want to compliment you on your boys _____&_____. They are so cute and polite (we wondered if she had the right family...LOL), and our granddaughter has a huge crush on the oldest. She has been taking photos of him on the beach from the balcony and I want to know if I could take a photo of him so I can have it blown up and give it to her for her birthday."
We laughed and said we'd have to trick him, otherwise, he'd never stand for the photo. So as he came back up the beach, I used her camera, and I had him pose first by himself, and then with his two brothers. The grandmom was very pleased and went back to her condo. So our grandson will be a "pin-up" on some girl's bedroom wall this summer. I agree with the girl - he IS quite the looker - but his mom would have my head if I showed a good pic of him on the blog, so the face behind the shark will have to suffice.
