While in paradise the last two weeks of May I spent nearly all day every day lying on the beach and snorkeling. I've been vacationing on the Emerald Coast since childhood, and one of my favorite things to do while there has always been diving for sand dollars. I loved it as a 10-year-old kid and I love it now, as a 46-year-old man. Along the way I showed my daughter how to dive for sand dollars as a little girl and it was something we always did together on those all-too-short summer vacations.
Well, that little girl continued to grow up and, now 21, is several years removed from our last sand dollar diving adventure.
It just so happened that she had a break in her schedule and drove over to Navarre Beach to stay with me for just a couple of days.
So for one day, on May 21st, for the first time in several years, we dove into those familiar waters together and spent the afternoon diving for sand dollars, and for that afternoon she was my little girl again.
The video of our diving exploits on that day - along with a couple of other days of my solo snorkeling - can be viewed here:

Always a joy Dolfnfan to view your videos. I am so glad you got to spend some time with your baby girl. What a joy that must have been. My one and only child...daughter, 18, is weeks from flying the nest and going to university. 18 years went by in a blink of an eye.....but all 18 years she has been to Navarre. We are third generation navarrians. Thanks again for sharing.
