An April Fool’s Day WWC Challenge

 This week’s WWC had a rough start, thanks to Tink’s monkeyshine.  She had an air of espieglerie about her last Tuesday and kept us wondering for quite a while before she smoothed things out. 
I couldn’t find a definition for that e-word [dictionary.com, you have failed me!] but Gary helped us all out, and Tink clarified the rest… 

 gr said:  espig(whatever): roguish and frolicsome!

Tink
 said:  Espieglerie also means “mischievous trick”. Monkeyshine means, “prank”. 😉

 And now that we are all educated and enlightened, here are my interpretations:

ROUGH

ESPIEGLERIE

MONKEYSHINE

SMOOTH is the egg that the Easter Bunny (AKA, SuperDad) hid in the tree (found here by my oldest son)

And finally, I thought this photograph summed all 4 words up nicely:
breaking waves
The smooth wet sand, the playfulness (and sometimes downright espieglerie) of the water, each juxtaposed with the rusty roughness of the failing barrier. 

Any guesses where the family went on Spring Break?
