Beach Week: Day 1!

Beach Trip! I am so ready!!



My sister and I left this morning at 10:00 and headed due south on I45!


We were ready for the beach!


I had the trunk completely full!
We filled the back seat and floorboard with Luann's things!
You would have thought we planned to be gone a MONTH instead of a WEEK!


We went all the way to Seawall Blvd in Galveston then drove onto the ferry to reach Bolivar Peninsula.
Luann remembered to bring bread for the seagulls.


The salty air smelled good and I LOVE the sounds of the waves and the seagulls!!


Oh, to be free as a bird!!


Of course I called Louis Dean upon our SAFE arrival!


Raynie already has a shell collection started!
Her Aunt Luann brought her this cool bucket!


Luann, me and Summer! Good times!


Island living looks a little different than home.
This reminds me of something I might see on Duck Dynasty!


Wine on the deck before dinner. 
I am only HOLDING that second glass for someone!! PROMISE!
Luann supplied dinner tonight - homemade chicken and dressing, seasoned green beans and cranberry sauce. Lots of cheese and crackers and snacks. The pantry here is FULL of all sorts of wonderful things.
This is going to be a good week!!

  3. Oh my gosh, I had no idea you were headed to Boliver. My parents live there. They live near the big water tower their little cove is Kona Kia. Things have changed down there since Ike but those people are tough and have brought their community back stronger and more beautiful. Have a great time. Sherri

    P.S...The seagulls didn't poop on you. We never feed them because they always poop on us. :)
