Thanks Lorrie, Evy and Bob for taking the time to comment. Lorrie, even though the mood of the photo looks soft the weather was anything but. The wind was picking up and blowing the sand into anything that was exposed. I had to keep my camera under my shirt for protection. Even after taking these precautions I still had to remove sand from the camera. #3087007
