Nothing like the sound of the ocean.
From day one I piled up in my chair and read. I read off and on the whole week. Went through two books.
I have other readers in my family too. Makes me happy they love to read.
We spent lots of time on the beach. We only had one day that we had to hurry and pack up as a wind storm came through as well as the rain. One day we packed up too soon as it looked like a storm was brewing but it passed us by. So we headed to the pool. We entertained ourselves. We played games and cards. Never a dull moment with my crew.
Even the youngest grandbaby loved the beach.
Marty wanted to buy a kite for the kids to enjoy on the beach. So I thought we would just run to Walmart you know and pick up a $5 kite. I mean...it's just a kite, right? Oh no! He wanted an Eagle and something large. We ordered the kite online. It came in just in time for our trip. DON'T ASK ME WHAT WE PAID FOR THAT KITE!!! However, we had the best kite on the beach! LOL! It is boxed up for next year.
YEP, I spent my early mornings sitting on the balcony drinking my coffee. Loved every minute of it too.
We went out to eat several times and we all took turns preparing some evening meals. Oh did we have some good eating!
We went crab hunting a couple of nights and if that isn't just a hoot with my bunch. The kids all have gloves and catch the crabs and then at the end of the crab hunt before returning back to the condo we turned them all out. It is so much fun to watch them. I have some competitive grandchildren too! LOL!
We had sparklers one night.
We went out for ice cream twice while there. The Twisted Spoon is right across the road from the condo and the kids love it. And the ADULTS too!We go there every year for ice cream when on our family beach vacation. My favorite is salted caramel.
I enjoyed spending time with my girls. I am so blessed that my family likes to spend time together and enjoys doing things together. No doubt I am blessed and I do not take it for granite I can assure you.
My oldest daughter and her husband celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary while there. They will be actually celebrating this coming weekend with a 3 day trip.
I sure enjoyed my Happy Place.
Missing the beach already but so thankful for the opportunity we had as a family to enjoy our trip together.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have Beach Blogger's trip? Oh what fun we would have.
I can't go to the beach without thinking about the Star Fish story. It always melts my heart. Maybe it's been a while since you have read it. Enjoy...
I hope that you all have a great week.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
