Well the hubby and I got away for three days to the beach in St. Augustine and oh was it so relaxing.
There's just times that you need to do a getaway. We all need to break away from routine at times don't you agree?
And especially when it's to the beach! MY HAPPY PLACE NO DOUBT! There is just something about the sound of the ocean that relaxes you. Especially when you have a good book to read.
We done some eating! Look at the size of those pancakes! WHOA! Needless to say he couldn't eat both. Seems that all we did do was lay on the beach and eat. Now we did have a tent mind you. My man is NOT going to lay out in the sun. Now me, I will lay out in the sun a while, get wet, then back under tent. This is kinda how I do my beach time. A little sun and a LOT of shade. He burns and I tan fairly easily but see here....THAT OCEAN WIND will burn you up if you aren't protected.
We went to several places to eat but one was called Caps on the Water. It was so nice. The atmosphere, food and service was excellent.
You can dine inside or out. When the sun goes down all the lights outside come on but are dimmed and oh so pretty glistening across the water.
Huge trees and of course huts everywhere. I felt like I was on an Island.
We went to another place for a Sunday Brunch called The Reef. You had the option to dine inside or outside facing the ocean. Of course we took the ocean view outside.
The choice was a breakfast menu, lunch menu or Brunch buffet, unless it was in the afternoon and then of course it was the dinner menu. I am not one to really care for a buffet as I never feel I eat our monies worth. Nope I'm not trying to be cheap but I am being logical. HOWEVER we decided on the buffet as soon as spotted CRAB LEGS (ALL YOU COULD EAT)...LOL! And oh did they have everything and anything from breakfast items, to imported cheeses, steak, seafood, veggies, salads, desserts and well, I can't even remember what all they did have! I ate my monies worth in crab legs and shrimp. I needed a nap after that adventure!
Isn't this Cross just beautiful? It is always lite up at night and so pretty.
The water was so calm and peaceful.
Back to reality it was though on Sunday night but we had a full three days of US time and enjoyed it. We did do a little shopping as in four weeks we will have a seven day family beach trip so needed to go ahead and pick up a few things for that trip.
And I have to show you Miss Annaleigh. Can you believe how much she has already grown and look at that smile. My mercy!
And of course this is our DIVA that will pose anytime you need for her too for a picture. She and her sister Mallory stay with me on Monday nights and Tuesdays during the summer. Never a dull or QUIET moment with the Diva around. LOL!
Can you guess what I having for lunch? YEP, a good old tomato sandwich....fresh out of the garden. Saving the jalapeno's for some poppers.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and remember..........
