The Harada family from Canada came to visit and so we took them to see one of our great Washington beaches. We planned a great day complete with a hot dog roast on the beach. It was a beautiful day with blue sky and plenty of sunshine, but the wind was blowing and it felt very cold to us. We managed to get a good fire going and had fun cooking the hot dogs, but before long we noticed that the wind was sandblasting them as we cooked them. This made for crunchy eating until Christine discovered that if you didn't actually put your teeth all the way together you wouldn't feel the sand. I tried mulling my hot dog and she was correct.
