Cast Off Celebration

January 13, 2017 in Beach, Crew, Injuries - 1 Comment

After six weeks of avoiding some of Crew’s favorite things; pools, beaches, excessive handwashing and impromptu baths (without the use of Press’n Seal wrap), it was finally time to ditch the cast. We headed straight to the ocean to celebrate. We no longer had to worry about sand or water getting…

When Crew broke his arm, the swim lessons that he was finally thriving in and trips to the pool and beach came to an abrupt halt. He asked us every single day if we could go to the pool. When we told him “No,” he’d ask, “Can we go to…
