At The Beach Again

Thursday, August 25, 2011

We had such a great time at the beach yesterday that we decided to go again this morning!  Grandma and Grandpa dropped Mom and me off at the beach around 9:00 AM and then they went off to get a few things done.  We stayed until 11:00 and had the most relaxing time!  I could really get used to this beach life!  Siesta Key Beach is supposedly the #1 beach in the country...I think I agree. :-)

 This was my view as I layed on my beach towel (well, Grandpa's beach towel actually).  It was slightly cloudy today plus there was a slight breeze, so the weather was quite pleasant.  The sand was so incredibly soft!

The water was really warm - the life guard shack had a sign up with all the current temperatures and apparently the water was 88*.  That sure beats our unheated public pool back home!  There were so many little kids building sand castles - I seriously was about to build my own sand castle, the sand was so luxurious!!  :-)

 Looking for shells!  I got quite a few nice ones.  I was looking for one of those big scrolly shells....but I don't think they just sit on the beach shore.  :-)  You probably have to go looking for them - swimming for them, that is - and I wasn't in the mood for a shark attack.  (Just kidding!  Actually I didn't want to get all wet because we were going to be driving home in Grandma and Grandpa's car.)

I think Mom is still really enjoying this vacation! Actually I KNOW she is!  She spent many summers on the beach with Grandma and Grandpa when she was my age, so she says this brings back fond memories for her!

A few shells I grabbed.  I like the ones that have lots of different colors on them - but even the white ones are an incredible testimony to God's detail in creation.  It was so wonderful to just walk the beach and listen to the waves crash up on the shore.  Like I said, I could really get used to this!

Dear Rachel,

Thanks for the great job of documenting your FL trip!

I've always loved the beach and fancied that sometime during my life I might live there. So far, it has not happened, but who knows what God has in store.
