At first she wanted to jump out of it but I sat down in the water and comforted her and she eventually relaxed and put her head on the rim and watched the waves roll in. There was no way I could leave her and get my camera to capture that shot but it would have been a good one.
(Is it obvious now that I don't have any grandchildren???)
After an hour of playing on the beach she was so dirty that I had to rinse her off anyway and blow dry her as well.
She wanted to catch that bird.
Supper tonight was Cajun Chicken Fricassée and rice. I cooked this at home and froze some to take camping. We usually serve this dish with potato salad but tonight I was just too tired to cook so I defrosted some and ate without the salad. Our Fricassée is made with a roux (flour, oil, onions, celery, bell pepper) and the gravy turns out very dark. I add the cut up chicken and let it cook for about an hour then serve over rice. Not everyone makes this dish the same way but this is the way my mom's ancestors (all great French cooks) handed down the recipe. Sorry... no photos.
