Beach House Vacation
Okay, my dear reader: I won't bore you with a play-by-play of the trip, but I'll highlight some bits.
John & I flew in on Saturday and were picked up by CJ & (his then soon-to-be-wife) Jeanann in her mom's Mustang convertible.
A few handfuls of people (referred to now as 'the gang') rented out a beach house, it was a great change from a typical motel. From the back porch, was a beach and a body of water. It was a great place to eat & watch the sunset & even a bowl of Frosted Flakes. My friend John & I took a few pics of other odd looking and sweet looking beach houses around the area. I might have to get myself one. Who wouldn't want a vacation home?
The beach wedding was a few miles from the beach house. An almost random spot picked, was a beautiful background for the wedding. I had never been to a beach wedding before; I give it two thumbs up! After the wedding, we went to Flounders restaurant, they had some of the best fish I've ever had and I'm not even big on eating fish.
'The 'gang' play a few games of beach volleyball that day and the next and later foosball & pool at a local tavern.
On one of the afternoons, 'the boys' (and a girl) from 'the gang' rented 4 jet skis for an hour. I think all of us tipped over at some point, but mine was pretty sad since I was at a stand still when I tipped over.
We took 3 trips just on the beach and played Frisbee and catching sea shells & even at one point, a crab. I even made a sad attempt at building a sand castle.
I bought a pair of sunglasses that broke way too early.
On the last day, we went to see the Blue Angels practice their air show. There was quite a crowd for just a practice. Then we went to the National Aviation Museum & I picked up some astronaut ice cream. It wasn't as good as I remember having it in elementary school.
Now, I should start thinking about my next vacation...
