At the Ocean

Cool breezes remind you that all is well as the sun’s warmth runs through you and gives a sense of pleasure. You try to absorb all that you can see, smell, and even taste. A sweet tranquility is laid out for that small window of opportunity for you to grab and relax with it. You are at peace with the world and everything in it.
Life is good
Good friends
Good food
Good times
Good laughs
Good sites
Good fun
Good golly
Laughing until we almost pee in our pants

Eating at a place with a funny name, where you can take a
marker and write on anything in the place…
table, benches, walls, blinds, lights…anywhere…really!

Up late, up early

Gulf shrimp, oysters, and crab claws at their finest

Walks on the beach until your shins ache with goodness

Snapping photo after photo after photo…

Watching Project Runway…Oh yeah

Eating a midnight snack of Bread Pudding with a whiskey sauce glaze

Feeding the sea gulls and hoping they do not poop on your head

People watching *smiling*

Shopping in the open air malls

A GPS we named SurelySurely she would get us there

Eating caramel candy apples coated with pecans
Beach Feet
Someone didn't paint their toes...tisk tisk  
The Bestie and her daughter
Margaritaville, Panama City Beach Florida

There is beauty that makes you stand in awe…you are mesmerized at the sheer miracle of it all...the combination of warm sunshine, white sands, sea foam green waters, and nature’s creatures. It makes the soul shine, it takes your breath away, and it leaves you feeling calm and complete…the ocean is a place everyone should see at least once in their life.

Places of interest:

Acme Oyster House inside the Village at Baytowne Wharf in the Sandestin Resort
Margaritaville for burgers with shrimp, crab and mushroom dip
Fudpuckers the place with the funny name
Henderson Beach beautiful southern beach
Silver Sands Outlet Malls for shopping

Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers. We had a wonderful time and I hope you did too with what ever you have been up to lately.
I missed reading your posts and will catch up as soon as I can…


I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen
yesterday and I love today.

Had a great time...gotta' do it again soon! Beautiful pictures as always. Life doesn't get much better than time with my best friend, my daughter and God's beautiful beach (the only thing that could have made it better would have been if Holly could have gone with us, maybe next time).
