Today, We made it! We went to the beach on the opposite side of the Barrier Islands from Big Lagoon. We anchored the boat in Big Lagoon in the Intercoastal Waterway and took the dinghy over to the island. We crossed the sand dunes on a walkway and went out into the surf. There were four foot waves in the gulf. We rode the waves. It was a lot of fun!
On our way back from the beach, Dad noticed that the dinghy was missing. He swam 1/2 mile back to Aspiration. Aboard Aspiration, He drove until he found the dinghy. After that, He paddled the kayak over to the other bank and drove the dinghy to pick me up. Good thing it was not gone for good!
