Back from the Beach!

For a couple of years now, a friend of mine has been wanting me to join the women in her family for their annual beach trip.  I spent tons of time at their house growing up, and I still attend their Thanksgiving and other family functions.  It hasn't worked out to go until this year, but I finally got to join them.  It was so much fun.  Just what I needed.  Jessica (my friend), her mom, and one of her sister-in-law's moms headed down early Wednesday.  We arrived that afternoon, and the condo was great!  We did some grocery shopping before the others arrived, and then had some dinner.

The others arrived later that night.  Everyone was tired from the day on the road, and we headed to bed.  Thursday we were ready for the beach.  This is kind of beach trips go for me...


quickly turns into this...


So Friday I decided to do a little shopping with one of the sister-in-laws.  We had a great time, got to know each other a little better, and had frozen yogurt, great day!

Saturday was more beach and more burn.  That night we had dinner at Tacky Jacks, a fun restaurant

Sunday it was time to head home.  It was just a lot of fun, lots of laughs, lots of R&R, just what I was needing!

There is some pretty pealing and itching going on right now, but the worst of the leftovers is the feet.  I love walks on the beach but sunscreen needs to be reapplied before the walk begins!

They are slowly returning to normal and losing the purple look.
I just can't thank them enough for letting me join this year's trip.  Already looking forward to next time!

And look at all those pictures!!  I may get better at this after all!

Except for the purple sunburns, this sounds like the perfect trip! Your view from the condo is amazing!

Did you ever take a run on the beach? I tried that ONE time and then decided it was much too difficult to run in the sand, even if it was wet! :o)
