Friday at the Beach

Well here we are Friday at the beach...haven't been in that lounge chair on the beach yet...we've come over here this same week for well over 30 years and never had a week of weather like this one...it has rained buckets and blown like crazy every day we've been here.
Haven't taken the protective wrapping off the sunscreen yet...LOL!
But not to worry...we have had a wonderful week...Mom and I have been sitting on the porch of the condo, reading (I'm starting book #6 this morning), visiting and having our wine every afternoon. Mom's having a great time. She keeps saying that she loves just being able to spend time with me...doesn't get much better.

Last evening we had a real sky show...this is the only sunset we've had all week and it was a spectacular one.

This is our last day...home in the morning to all my boys...Andy says once again Howie is spending lots of hours every day by the front door windows waiting for his momma to come home. Enjoy the day!

We used to go every year growing up to the OuterBanks, NC and we never cared if it rained or not. well maybe a bit as kids, but not so much as adults. We played cards, dominos, games and read.

Wow what a great sunset. Sounds like you made the best out of not so great weather and got lots of reading done.

What lovely photos, Carol! I can feel the breezes even! How wonderful you and your mom had quality time together, even if the weather wasn't the best.
How sweet that Howie has been waiting for mama to come back. We love our dogs, don't we?

Karen said...

I wondered if you were having the same lousy weather we have been having on this Florida coast all week long. Well, at least you got some reading done and hopefully some handwork. And Mama was happy!

Sorry the weather sucked but at least you got to spend time with mom. That's what it's all about right?

Perry said...

Great sunset. I am sure you mother was ecstatic to just spend time with you and not have any agenda. I always enjoy spending time with my girls when we have no agenda, and I know Aud and I have times like that quite often.

Sounds like you had a great time . . . it's the company not the weather that makes a trip successful *s*

Sorry you had bad weather Carol, but it may have been worth it for that one beautiful sunset. I hope you're home safe and sound now!
