After waking to the sun streaming in their windows, the couple head to the balcony to enjoy breakfast and an ocean view.
Right after breaskfast, Sock and Icarus head down to the pool for a little sun.
After Icarus heads to the hospital to visit Grandfather, Sock stays to sun himself some more...
...and watch Son swim.
He decides to stick his toe in.
Sock is offended! He is really a bit more than half a foot.
Soon he is even more confused:
He makes a note to talk with Knitter David.
Feeling like perhaps he does not belong by the pool, Sock heads for the beach to check out some naked feet. Looking at the footprints, he wishes Icarus could be here to appreciate all the bare shoulders.
Not wanting to turn red from too much sun, he relaxes under an umbrella.
Sock wearily climbs the stairs back to the hotel where he takes an afternoon siesta.
After his nap, Sock relaxes with a good book while Son finishes his nap.
After the boy wakes up and they await the return of Icarus, Sock joins in a raucous game of Twenty-One.
Sock is overjoyed when Icarus comes home with Grandfather!
P.S. My deep gratitude goes to David. Not only has he been willing to humor my fiber addiction. Not only has he learned to knit (this is his first sock making its debut in today's adventures). In an effort to entertain
BTW, David informs me that it is even more dorky for a middle-aged man to take pictures of an unfinished sock on its touristy adventures than it is for me to do it.... I love you, David--especially your geekiness. Thanks for being here. And thanks for bringing the sock.
