~ Beach Day ~

Anyone who knows my husband knows that he DOES NOT like the beach!!  The ONLY thing he enjoys about the ocean is when he is in a boat with his gazillion fishing poles and his tackle boxes. 

I certainly enjoy a beach day every now and then and fortunately for me I have 2 sweet nieces that enjoy it too!!  This past Friday I took the day off work and me and my sweet nieces were beach bound by 7:30 am.  We stopped at Publix for snacks, water and ice.  Of course we had to fuel our bodies up for body surfing so we stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast.  We arrived at Crescent Beach at about 9:45 am.  We found the perfect spot, dropped our stuff, lathered up with sunscreen and hit the waves.  Surprisingly the water was rather cool and we had to force ourselves to get in.  We took a couple of breaks to snack and “people watch” … we had full intentions of building a sand castle; however we ended up just building a heart.  Finally at 2 pm I told the girls we needed to think about heading home.  We were able to rinse off the salt and sand and put on some dry clothes.  On the way home we stopped at Sonny’s for “lunch (at 3 in the afternoon).  Fortunately all the bad weather that hit Friday afternoon did not cause us any trouble on our way home!!  We are already planning our next beach day.  The girls and I can go ANY TIME but Jake is playing travel ball so we have to work around his games so that he will be able to join us next time!  I am so thankful to have such sweet, well behaved nieces and nephew that I can spend special time with …..
