Summer Vacation

When pondering our vacation this year we decided to keep it close and head to one of our favorite spots on the coast. We enjoyed walking miles and miles on several different beaches.
 I seem to be most like myself when I am at the beach. Something about the smell of the coastal breezes combined with the sound of the waves and the feel of the sand makes my mind slow down and rest. Maybe that's how God intended it to be. You certainly can't look at the vastness of the ocean or the beauty of a magnificent beach sunrise or sunset without thinking about the greatness of God.
 Vacations seem a bit different now that we have one son that is married. Due to his schedule with medical school already in session they weren't able to make it down but for one night. One thing though that never changes is the inability to get a great snapshot of all the kids looking at me with everyone smiling and eyes open at the same time. It's just not going to happen!
 We had a birthday girl during our vacation and she wanted to celebrate by going to an old plantation and having tea at the cutest little tea room there.
 Our lovely southern belles!
 Such a flair for the dramatic!
 We really enjoyed our vacation and family time together. It went by too fast though. I'm already looking forward to our next trip to the coast.
