Life is Good at the Beach!

Ahhh, the beach! Indeed, life is Good at the Beach. We're off for a week at the beach! Hope you all have a wonderful week & don't forget about me! I'll take lots of pics & share when I get back. In the meantime, we'll be eating lots of seafood, lounging in the sand (under the umbrella, of course) and relaxing with a good book!
If you've never been to the Gulf Coast of Florida, you are missing out on the best beach experience in the good ole' USA! It's truly the most beautiful beaches around...powdery, sugar white sand, blue skies, & blue-green water. Spectacular! We just love Florida's Gulf Coast! See ya'll soon!

I'm really going to miss you (forget you? Never!)! I think that I'd rather be going to the beach than garage sale-ing. I will look forward to your return, and seeing your pictures from your trip (there are some fun antique places on the way... ;)

Love, Andrea

I've been online the past couple of weeks trying to narrow down where we're gonna stay in June.

The Gulf beaches have the softest, whitest sand ever!

Have a wonderful time!

Have a great time. We vacation in Seaside every year. I'll be looking forward to your photos.. and let us know what you read!

Susie Q said...

Oh yes! We lived in Pensalcola twice and Corpus Christ, TX and Tampa so know the Gulf Coast well...from 3 areas!

When you mentioned the "sugar" sands I was transported back to Pensacola...gorgeous beaches.

I know you will have a wonderful time. Relax and enjoy each other and the sunshine! I am betting that there a *few* antique shops here and there...: )

Stay well and safe! HAVE FUN!

Hugs,
Sue

Hi! Rhoda

Justcame across your site. Will come back and visit all soon. Wish I was there too on the Florida Gulf Coast. Have not been on the Florida coast but have sailed through the Gulf many times in all weathers.
Come and visit me, we both love gardens, among othe things.

ShabbyInTheCity said...

Oh I just have to say I'm here mowing while you rest under the umbrella. And babysitting twin 6 year old boys oh joy. Have fun!!!

Dorothy said...

Sounds like you'll have a wonderful time! Nothing like those sugar white sandy beaches and that Gulf water & air. Oh how we miss it! And the seafood!!!!

While we live just 2 hours from the beaches here in NC, I still say that the Gulf Coast is the best! We may be sneaking some time down there to visit our family who are still in Louisiana. That gives us an excuse to scoot on over to Pensacola to see other relatives and friends and get in some much needed 'beach time'. So glad you shared this! I always love visiting your blog! Have fun!!!
