Last Saturday my handsome husband and I were watching two of our grandchildren while their older sister was playing in a weekend sand soccer tournament at Fort Fisher. We decided to take a trip to the beach to watch sissy, her team and spend the day at the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day. When we arrived the beach was marked with eleven soccer fields along with nine hours of nonstop soccer. Colored tents lined alongside the marked fields with parents and families nestled in for a day at the beach. It was quite a sight watching twenty-two teams play and after each game run as a herd from the fields straight into the ocean to cool off. Along with the players, our younger grandchildren were among them having a great day playing in the sand and ocean. This was our first experience at Sandblast Soccer and we really enjoyed the day interacting with parents, players and their families. Plenty of food, drink, an ocean and a hot sandy beach.
As the day grew hotter, the sand grew hotter to walk on. It had gotten so hot, you could seriously burn the bottom of your feet. I was grateful I had brought my flip flop slippers I made to protect my feet. They really worked out great! I could walk along the beach and not worry they had gotten wet because they’re made with cotton yarn. Later when we walked the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, I didn’t have to change shoes. They looked great with my maxi dress. Later at home, I through them in the wash and now they are ready to wear again. I love them! So much so I am motivated in making a pair for each grandchild to wear. One blue, pink and purple pair.
