Serenity Sunday

You may remember that I hate the beach.  I hate how sand gets everywhere.  I hate feeling sticky.  I hate getting hot.  I hate getting sweaty.

But I have to admit that this trip has been better than normal.  Apparently if you take away heat and an abundance of sunshine, the beach isn’t so bad.  I mean, I still had sand in my crack(which I’m sure we can all agree is not preferable), but it wasn’t horrible.

It also didn’t hurt that we were only out for a few hours each morning.  And the beach isn’t nearly as crowded now that it’s “off season”.

And as great as the clouds and breeze were, it wasn’t optimal picture-taking weather.  Normally I love a little natural shade from clouds.  But the clouds were so dark and heavy that I expected a downpour at any moment…and that just makes everything look dull and gray.

But I did get this one good shot of my crowd working on our sand castle.  And soon I’ll post the rest of my pictures.  We have such cute kids.

    I’m glad ya’ll had a great time! Next time you come down we should get together since I”m only about 10 minutes from there, in Brunswick. And you are right its much better when its the off season. That’s when we like to go the most. Its easier to let the kids run without the worry of them getting lost in a crowd of people.

    How is it that I am friends with two people who hate the beach? (You and Kirsten) Dude what is wrong with this picture. I heart the beach. I could live on one forever. 🙂
