Home from the Beach

We had a wonderful time at the beach, although I am absolutely exhausted as I write this.

So...this won't be a long post. Just a few, random comments about the trip...

* The beach and sand and water were just about perfect this time around. Clear water, lots of shells, and absolutely perfect weather!

* Because of the perfect weather (no clouds in the sky), I got a little "toasty" red.

* I love fried shrimp and gumbo!

* I wrote a chapter on a novel (the bach is a very creative place!). We'll see how it progresses...

* We had an awesome porch on our beach house. It was perfect for enjoying the warm breeze at night and listening to music and talking with friends.

* I took a ton of pictures (my new banner pic gives you a little peek!) and will share some with all of you soon.

I've enjoyed the pics on Facebook. Looks like it was a great vacation. I plan to do a "beach" post as soon as VBS is over. Until then, I'm toast.

Lurve your banner and the cute bathing beauty. Thought the pics were wonderful (on FB), too. Loved seeing your family in white. So beachy.
