Joseph Joseph yells
Dad Joseph stopped looked
Joseph ran away
Sitting at the beach and listening.
I am aware of the beach dog rules,
From Memorial Day to Labor Day, no dogs on the beach.
Months of April, May and September, dogs can be on the beach but on a lease.
From October 1 to April 1, dogs can be on the beach and under voice command.
Kids are never not allowed on the beach.
And if you listen, kids are never under voice command either.
Part of a series based on an afternoon spent at the beach on Hilton Head Island.
I wanted to see if I would be ‘inspired’ by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.
Some turned out okay.
Some were too forced.
Some were just bad.
Some did involve some or all of those feelings.
As far as it goes, I guess I was inspired by by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.
