What A Day!

I thought I'd share some of our most fantastic day with you. The weather was perfect, mid-eighties, and the waves were gentle.

Here's the view. That is a ship on the horizon. I just couldn't get enough of looking at the ocean.

Four of my guys. They were trying to get their act together for a pose. Never did quite make it, though.

This is Nicky, who apparently doesn't feel the need to removed the floating ring even when he's not in the water.

All of them brought their fins, snorkels and masks. In my writer's mind, they just looked like dead bodies floating in the ocean.

And one more last, gorgeous look at the view.

Later that evening we celebrated Paul's thirteenth birthday. I think we may have to make a trip to the beach a condition of every birthday!

We were all exhausted, but happy. And I remembered the sunscreen this time, so we didn't look like boiled lobsters. Well, most of us didn't. I sprayed my arms and throat, but forgot to do my face or the back of my neck and arms. So I look like a lobster when I leave the room. I can't believe I was that stupid! Anyway, have a great weekend.


  1. How fun!! I can almost hear the waves against the shore...but then again, I've been hearing all sorts of things lately, lol! =)

  2. Wow looks like fun!! Around here all we want to do is cuddle up in our hoodies and drink hot cocoa :) Not so bad either, but no beach!

  3. Wow! What awesome pictures!! I can't believe you were swimming this time of year, but then I remembered you live in the south, in the land of perpetual heat. We're enjoying our cool, rainy northern fall!

  4. Absolutely beautiful! I haven't been to the beach since my honeymoon six years ago.

    Thanks for sharing. (Boiled lobsters- I like that)

    Blessings to you!

  5. Hey you posted some photos!!!! yuhuuuuu!!!!! ;)

  6. Happy Birthday to Paul! I love your pictures and I must say that I'm a little jealous you are all going to the beach in October. Glad you enjoyed yourselves.
