Life's A Beach

Doesn't that sunshine feel good sweetie?


Uh huh...we are here...walking the beaches of Fort Walton and Destin. Bill is in Florida for a conference so we tagged along. Yes, Grace has her school's approval! I swear! She does classroom work all morning
and then, in the afternoon we play.


We take long walks on the beach...
...and chat with the locals. Right local?? RIGHT? Okay, so he t'ain't talkin'...



And we eat delicious seafood...oh were these crab cakes yummy!



Then we sit and watch the sun go down...wow.


A little get away every now and then is good...and we are sure enjoying it.


I have internet service in our room but it is slooooooow. I may not be able to get around to visit much this week but will when we return. I think about all of you often...and send each one of you
 much love and many hugs.

Well, you lucky dog you! That sunshine looks fantastic. Been snowing here in Texas today. I rather like the look of your "local" there. A nifty looking bird. You guys have lots of fun now!

Enjoy your time together!

Our kids have often had midwinter break. Because, in Seattle, you NEED to get you some sun every year between November and April if you possibly can. One child's school has it, and one child gets to come along for the ride. :)

Wonderful pictures, Sue!

I came by from BeachKat's site. Looks like you all are having a blast down this way. I wish the weather were a little warmer for you all but I guess it's much warmer than where you live!

Jim Rittenhouse said...

That looks awfully nice right about now...great photos, by the way! Grace is very photogenic...

linda said...

Just stopping over via Kat, hope you don't mind.

Oh that sun and warmer weather looks good right about now. I'm in CA so it's not freezing, but it's still nippy out. Destin looks beautiful.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Fort Walton beach is a lovely place. I love all the beaches up in the pan handle. So glad you could enjoy it for awhile. Take care. (Hugs))

PEA said...

You know, you could have brought me with you!!!! I could feel the warmth of the sun through your pictures, how beautiful they all are. That last one of the sunset with the bird flying just over the sun...absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy every minute my friend:-) xoxo
