Beach Observations

The teenagers at the poolside read paper books a lot, which makes me happy. Thick books with adult covers. I can’t understand the titles, unfortunately. 

It’s only girls who are reading, though. I haven’t seen a single boy with a book so far. And there are many, many teenage boys here. (It’s a family resort.)

Also, a huge and happy group of Argentineans with kids moved in. Talking about the joy of life, these folks are a pleasure to observe. They are so into whatever they are doing that it’s beyond cute. And the Daddies are so into spending time with the kids that it’s really great. Whenever the Argentineans hear me teach Klara how to pronounce my name, they think we are greeting them in Spanish. 

Dolphins often swim close to the beach and jump up in the air. What I don’t get is the people who immediately grab their phones to snap photos. There are thousands of beautiful, professional photos of dolphins online. What’s the point of trying to add a few more?

  1. Dolphins seem to tap into some very primal part of people’s brains. Once in the canaries you could see dolphins in the distance and everybody had silly happy looks on their faces (many trying to take pictures).

    Last year in Bulgaria at one point I saw a bunch of people staring will silly happy and very intent looks on their faces gazing out and pointing at a particular spot….. dolphins.
