Re: “Retire and do what?” Tom Germond’s column, June 19
Editor:
One of my biggest pet peeves, when walking the beaches in the same areas you frequent, are the holes in the beach sand. Instead of looking at the beautiful aqua water, instead of looking at the cloudless sky, you have to be watching where you walk so as not to fall into one of those holes, and some of them are huge.

I personally think there should be signs posted that say, “Have an awesome time at the beach, play, sunbathe, but when you leave, please fill the holes in made by you or your children.”

Recently, while walking the beach in North Redington, I came across a lady with two young girls, probably 9-10 years old, digging a nice big hole. The lady told them, when they finish, to fill the hole in so this lady (me) or anyone else won’t fall in it while walking by. I stopped and thanked her, telling the young girls if I fall in one of those holes and break a leg/arm/hip, I might not be able to ever walk the beach again.

PS: I retired and did a Blue Danube River cruise, it was awesome and it was expensive, and yes, we should explore Florida and surrounding states.

Thanks for a nice article, and when and if you retire, enjoy every minute of it. I am.
