Did I swim THIS weekend in the ocean?  Let’s see.  Crab larvae?  Check.  54 degree water?  Check.  Outer Banks jelly fish?  Check.

But GUESS WHAT.  I went in ANYWAY for a few minutes.  {angels singing!}

Saturday afternoon the jellyfish cleared out to about 10 a wave rather than 100.  The crab larvae were minimal and the water warmed to 60+.  I looked at my mom and said, “I’m goin’ in!”

A few small stings later I came out drenched with sea water paired with a huge grin on my face.  (While I scratched my hind parts to get a stray crab larvae or two.)   The tide immediately changed at that point and the water became rip tide city, so those few minutes were all I got.

We will go out this morning before lunch, so I’m crossing my fingers.  But yesterday I came, I swam, I conquered – if only for a few tiny moments!

And guess what else?  I played Corn Hole for the first time.  On the beach.  In my bathing suit.  I didn’t win but I got a Corn in One.  What does that make me?

  • Darned if I'd go in with those things swimming around in there! Yikes!

    But good for you – love the *angels singing* line. LOL!

  • You are a brave, brave woman! *tips hat to you*

  • You are a brave woman to swim with jelly fish and other things in the water!!


  • I love the video, but dang, those things would keep me out of the water. Oh, and the fact that I don't swim too. Now, Sweetie, corn hole is a game I've never heard of, except for men in prison. Say what???

  • Jb

    Sounds like you like to live dangerously!
    And what is Corn Hole?

  • You brave woman!

  • God I hate jelly fish!!! I don't remember there being so many when I was a kid – maybe I was just happily ignorant. I DO remember, however, one time when I was living on the Naval Amphibious Base my sisters and I were hanging out at the Officers beach one day when this hot lifeguard named John got stung by a jellyfish – what did he do – well, he picked it up and bit it right back – dumbass!!!

  • Tis the season! And tomorrow will be the first day I actually might visit the beach in Kitty Hawk this year (just a few miles from there). Just hate the gobs of tourists and have to drive in it most days.

    • Lisa, did you see the jellyfish?!?!! They have been terrible! I need to take the kids to Kitty Hawk. I've been there, but realize now that I've not taken them! Did you have fun?

  • I think that makes you a corn holer?
