The day before the Daughter was scheduled to return to the States, we went to the beach and saw something so endearing, I had to document it in picture form.
A few couples had taken up residence in the spot in front of us, and one of the women declared she was in need of a nap.
However, she informed the crowd this wouldn’t be possible because she didn’t have a pillow.
Immediately, her boyfriend sprung into action and started to create a “sand” pillow.
I was both amazed and amused that a man could be so attentive to his beloved’s needs.
So much, I felt compelled to photograph every step of the process.
The Daughter, quite the independent woman, sneered in contempt, “If she wants a damn pillow, why can’t she make it herself?”
Even though I wondered the same thing, I couldn’t help but find this man’s actions chivalrous.
Were we all so lucky to have such a “hands on” gentleman at our beck and call, eh ladies?
And so without further ado, I give you, “The Making of a Sand Pillow.”
