The gals, walking along... Hmm, how do I explain this? Um, the part of the panhandle we were in has these little specific sort of oceanside lake/lagoon/things-with-a-name-that-I-can't-remember-right-now, a sort that only occurs there and somewhere in South Africa. And those lake/lagoon/things-a-ma-bobs actually have these little waterway/outlets that run across the beach like little mini-rivers and flow out into the ocean. That was a terrrible explanation, but the lake/lagoon/thing-a-ma-bobs and their associated mini-rivers are quite lovely and cool. And the gals enjoyed traipsing their way through them.
