"Zorro" feet!

No, my feet haven't been slashed by a masked bandit-- they've just seen a LOT of sun this summer! The sandal tan on my feet provides clear evidence that I'm working outside this summer... and it has, on more than one occasion, given me the opportunity to introduce my work with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. A typical conversation goes something like this:
Friend: "What happened to your feet??"
Me: "I, uh, work outside... teaching with this incredible environmental education program called Boston Harbor Explorers run by Save the Harbor/Save the Bay..." [explanation of how awesome SHSB is]
Friend: "So do you ever take your shoes off?"
Me: "Apparently not."

Fortunately, I love my Chacos-- not nearly as much as I love the work that I do, but my shocking strap tan is a welcome reminder of how much time I get to spend outside with my friends, both young and old, at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay.

Sun and Sandals,
