Had a great time at the beach with Adrianne and Parker! It takes 2 1/2 hours to get down to Wrightsville Beach from our house in Carrboro. We spent 3 hours on the beach, and then trucked back to Chapel Hill-Carrboro tonight. Sun and surf were great, with a hot sun cooled by the breeze, and cooler water, which felt great.
And plenty of eye candy!
What was fascinating was my son Parker's observation of how Dean and I talk between ourselves. He is watching and listening carefully. So far, when we agree and laugh, as well as when we disagree, talk rationally about our feelings, and then keep moving on in the relationship once everything is aired, he is seeing how two people in love communicate, agree, disagree, and care for one another...whether they are gay or straight.
By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea...
