    Our own private beach. No sand, but lots of tidepools. Fun for James to play in. Doorlink, of course, stepped on a sea urchin...

    Oh, and Frank, when your mother in law and your three year old come along, it's a vacation, *not* a honeymoon....

    Thanks,

    Really nice Bill - must have been very difficult to leave!

    At first seeing the title of the thread I was wondering why you would post 6 photos. Then I figured it out - I'm slow, but I'm thorough.

    Then I remembered an old joke - I wonder if Roman doctors ever said, "Give me a saline 4, STAT!"

    Darren,

    The spikes are still in her heel, but now they're so deep we can't see them. Here's a pic of a virgin islands sea urchin:

    The one she stepped on was much bigger. They're pretty mean spikes: barbed, poison, and they swell up with blood like a cactus needle. Not as bad as jumping cactus, but pretty yucky just the same. I had to carry her all the way back to shore, as she lost both her beach shoes in the incident, and the urchins were pretty thick on the sea floor...

    Thanks,

    Bill
