Beach Walker Boy's first day on the golf course...



On Wednesday afternoon, Beach Walker Boy and I raced to Patriots Point Golf Links for his first session with the First Tee of Charleston that I posted about a few weeks ago. We were late arriving and it was starting to mist. I asked the first staffer I saw where the children were meeting and he was gracious enough to offer his cart to get to the meeting spot. Not wanting to run the risk of tipping the cart in my hurry, I asked him if he would mind taking the trip down the lane and he did...Beach Walker Boy loves a good golf cart ride. There are quite a few people here who own their own personal golf carts that they use either down by the beach or around the neighborhood. Needless to say, Beach Walker Boy thinks it a good investment...Uhhh, Right!

Well, back to the other afternoon. The mist started to turn to showers...then to a full out rain storm. As I looked out the window of my car where I was comfortably waiting, I saw a parade of golf carts streaming down the lane back to the viewing porch. Out poured a stream of wet tweens. I braved the rain from the car to the covering to show my support as other parents were a bit more on the ball having brought umbrellas...Oh well, I try. After so much time in the desert, I'm still getting used to the idea of a umbrella. A little rain never hurt anyone...unless of course, it comes by way of a hurricane.

Apparently the children did have enough time together with the coaches to go over the rules and and structure of the program. They each received their own score and guide books. Everyone seemed happy...maybe because a kid generally love getting drenched in the rain. We'll be back out there next Wednesday...hopefully with better weather for the children and so I could chill outside as I wait for 'Boy' and watch the harbor boats go by...
