|ringing the bell. She also spent a lot of time at the Light House alerting everyone to the "loud storms" that were coming|
|Son spent a lot of time "swimming"|
|Son built a sandcastle.|
|Daughter tried to fill up "The Hole" with ocean|
sigh. I loved it and took a ridiculous amount of pictures in order to document the love properly.
|WHAT? yes. He did this on his own!|
|He loved the yellow flag waves. I cannot even describe his happiness and excitement|
|He took a tumble or two in the surf but got right back in for more.|
|Daughter definitely enjoyed the water and sand as well, but that's not anything new. Doesn't this make you wince? It does me. I'm just not built to do that anymore!|
No one really wanted to leave, but Husband and I were very hungry. So we started talking about "The Restaurant" which always works in getting the kids motivated to leave a place. They love eating out. Initially, Husband and I wanted to find this place close to the Florida line, on the water but not on the main drag, but we couldn't remember the name or how to get there. All we remembered was it was the last place we ate at the beach before Daughter was born and they have great royal reds. It was 8:00 and the kids were in no mood for all the riding around. So we settled on the Shrimp Basket in Florida. It's across the street from the ocean and bonus: we ate outside.
EXTRA BONUS: "Market Price" for crab claws at the beach is much cheaper than "Market Price" for crab claws in Birmingham. sigh. and they were fabulous. And there was shrimp in the cole slaw. AND the hush puppies were amazing. AND the shrimp was splendid. It was fabulous and then we headed home.
Trip well enjoyed.
