Wednesday, 8/15/07: windscreen on the beach

Yesterday was incredibly gorgeous. Fortunately, Grace, Beth, and I went out on the beach to carry on some of our important work-related conversations. Today, it's chilly and breezy. Grace and I stayed inside, but when I looked outside, I saw this:

What are those you ask? (If you didn't ask, you should've.) They're windscreens! It's fabric about 3 feet high, stretched out in a long line and held into place by 3 poles--one on each end and one in the middle. You can even set it up in an L shape. You can enjoy the sun without the wind. What will they think of next? On the Texas beaches, whatever breeze you can get (there's never any wind except for hurricanes) is most welcome and one would never intentionally block it.
