Once in a lifetime moments.
I love to have them.
I love to make a point to remember them.
This was one of those.
After our "Lover's Leap" 3.5 hour, 3.5 mile morning hike,
we opted to let the kids swim
at a little "beach pond"
in Custer State Park.
Ahhhhh . . . . time to kick the feet up and
relaaaaaxxxxx . . .
Just as the foundation was laid for
Erin's first sandcastle,
that had stranded us earlier in the day
was being driven through the beach area
to the sounding crack of a bullwhip!
Just look at the thrill on thier faces:
But a short 15 minutes later,
after watching the herd take a few gulps of water
the coast was clear.
And they were back in the water.
No sharks here.
Just a few hundred buffalo passing through.
Beach hazards . . . South Dakota style.
