Dear Folks,

Spent the day at China Beach. The water was open for a while. So we got to go in the water without the lifeguards on our backs. Just about got thrown off the beach this morning, because every time the lifeguards would turn their backs or go to the other end of the beach we would accidentally throw the football in the water and go in to retrieve it.

Got two letters today written on the 14th.

China Beach again tomorrow if the weather is nice. Supposed to have a band at the Rice Paddy tomorrow too. So should have a full day.
