I was at "baby" beach about 5 years ago sitting on the sand right by the surf with the gentle waves lapping at my hands and toes. My eyes were closed and I was enjoying the sun. Hubby was snorkling over by the sea wall far, far away. He looked over at me at one point and saw me "dancing" on the shore where he had left me. Since I am not one to break out in random dance numbers, he was taken aback...he immediately swam back and when he came over he realized what I was really doing was the dance of the I just held and threw back in the ocean a seacreature very similar to a snake that was crawling around my fingers...apparantly the creature enjoyed sliding over my fingers and I thought it was just the waves I was feeling, a misconception I won't be having again... Can you say YIKES!
