Goggles and a water hose to the rescue
Told you to BEWARE that I was taking photos again. Max was nice enough to put on his bathing suit, douse himself with the water hose and stand in the street so we could get out from under the tree cover. We had fun until the wind blew my flash unit down and smashed it into the ground. But after some finagling, my hero husband fixed it for me! So minus the dents, all is well, whew!
