A lot of people think that when you live in Florida, you go to the beach. When actually, most of the time you can go months with out even stepping foot near a beach. There’s something about it, maybe it’s the hassle of traffic or the fact that most of us aren’t on a vacation like the rest. We have jobs to tend to, houses to upkeep, families to feed and so on and so on.
So the other day when my sister proposed an idea to have a girls day at the beach with just us sisters and Mom, I thought it was a brilliant idea. I am always up for people watching down here on Spring Break.
We had an iced coffee and sat on the boardwalk and people watched, then had lunch at our favorite beach front restaurant, The Cottage. Then afterwards hung out at the beach bar for hours talking, laughing and just enjoying the AWESOME weather.
It was just nice to get out and take advantage of the fact we are all in one city, right now at this very moment and not for something tragic or ill. Thank God.
And now I am cursing myself for the sunglasses racoon look. Ahhhh! Never fails!
