across the U.S.A

Last week we went to the beach for a few days, it was our anniversary! Neither of us are huge beach people but I do love listening to the waves and feeling the breeze…..if I had a book and umbrella, even better. We walked on the beach some, read books, hubby hit golf balls on the driving range every day, went shopping some, ate seafood every chance I got and went to see a movie. Mostly relaxing except for the work calls he kept getting each day; this time of year is his busy season and work is hard for him to get away from!

View from the balcony…….it doesn’t show up once I sized this picture down but way off in the distance were quite a few oil rigs. They seemed to be everywhere down there.

One morning we noticed quite a few dolphins swimming/playing in the water close to shore. I took a few pictures from the balcony and then we walked down to the beach to see them even closer. They were hard to catch when they were out of the water!

And yeah, that doesn’t show up well after sizing!

We had fun company over the weekend, more golf was involved! We gave a wedding luncheon for a young couple and I’ve been trying to regroup this week but not having much success getting back into the swing of things. Thank goodness it’s almost the weekend again!

    I’m in terrible need of an ocean fix!

    I brought a gallon of ocean water home from Hilton Head (to give Teddy a bath for his skin problem) – I might have to sit and sniff it!

    Love the new(-to-me) layout!! It’s been a while since I visited 🙂
    Posted those pics I told you about: painting in the office 🙂
    Just noticed your reading list. Are you loving Redeeming Love? My all-time favorite book!! Also, I loved Amy Grant’s Mosaic. I need to read it again, but portions just touched me and made me see her again as a person-not an icon 🙂

    Congratulations on your anniversary! Going to the beach sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. What is the actual date? Ours is June 2nd. I’ve never seen dolphins in the wild. That would be so awesome.

    Sigh. I would love to be there. Alas, we’d have to do some big travelling to get to an ocean beach as we are pretty much land locked. But there is some lovely lake beaches in our province we just might peruse!

    Sounds like a great trip! The dolphins were easier to see in the full size picture, maybe next time you can crop to that before you shrink it down for the blog 🙂 Glad you guys were able to get away and celebrate your anniversary – you didn’t tell them how many years, LOL!

    Another busy week coming up, hope you and K have fun!

    How I wish I could just nonchalantly say, “Last week we went to the beach for a few days.” You are so lucky. And I’m very jealous. 🙂 Beautiful pictures…they make me wish I was in them.
