A Great Day at the Beach!!

Our last trip to the beach was so delightful!!

Just look at this little fellow!!
We don't get a whole lot of these
but I LOVE watching them!!
He would try to outrun the waves coming in!!
Too cute!!

As you can see it was a beautiful day.
It was a bit windy, and there were bigger
waves than normal so we didn't venture into
the water

Little Miss Emily loves the beach as much or
more than I do!!

It's so great to "see life" through her eyes!!

It reminds me constantly to find JOY in the
little things!!

The clouds started to roll in, and it got a little
too cool with the wind coming across the water

I mean the water temp is still in the high 60's!!

Emily started feeding the seagulls so of course
I had to get a few pics!! They are really pretty

And what fun it was to look down the beach
and see a beautiful bride getting pictures taken
on the shore. Click photo to see her better!!
She was holding her dress and twirling and posing.
Remember the elation you felt on your wedding day??
It just brought back all of mine and made my day!!

THEN, on the way out, we drove past a hotel and
there she was out front!!

We HONKED several times and all waved to her,
and she jumped with delight waving to us
with a big smile on her face!!

Such a fun day!!

OH!! And my header picture...
it was shot the same day.

As any good Nana would, I made a public
spectacle of myself by whirling around in circles
chasing Emily with the camera.

I was sure I didn't get any decent shots...

Blessings to you Sweeties!!
Have a glorious weekend!!
I'm heading out to do some planting!!

  8. Hi there! Yes! My team did win. It was a crazy score 10-5! I love baseball season :0)
    I so enjoyed the visit to the beach. I love the coast. This time of year my hubby and I usually venture to the central coast but we had to postpone our trip til later, ah well. What a beautiful little girl in that header, she is just so full of delight. I love it!
    How great you got to see a bride on her wedding day. It's so special. My hubby and I always seem to grab hands when we see a new bride and groom together *sigh
    I hope you have a fantastic day!
