A Night at the Beach

We went to the beach tonight with Cheri (and her family), and my cousin and his family. We get together about every 3 months and Patti suggested the beach. It was nice out, so we headed out there. We stopped for pizza first and took it there. We ate by the channel and watched the boats go by. I'll post pictures of that tomorrow. After dinner, we headed to the beach area and played frisbee, flew kites and played in the sand. You will notice that the younger kids did a little more playing in the water, than out! After that, we headed back to the channel to try a little fishing. Shaelyn did not catch anything. She blamed it on us. We were being too noise and scaring all the fish away. We ended up, walking the pier to the lighthouse. It was gorgeous out there. At the end of the night, we thought we needed a little dessert. We headed to the "famous", Captain Sundae. This is where President Bush ordered a Tommy Turtle Sundae when he was out, campaigning. What a fun night. We couldn't have asked for better weather or a more fun night!















See how Shaelyn is trying to pull them out of the water?














Laura, do you see the BIRDS?

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit. Your site looks great! You must be HTML savvy.

Your jars of juice look great. I've never done juice. I agree, Home canned stuff is so much better!

Come back and visit anytime. I plan to come back again and have a look around.

It was a fun night! Just to make the record correct- the only reason Shaelyn was "pulling" them out of the water was because I was further down the beach trying to take a picture and telling her to walk more on the sand. The dessert was good and a perfect ending to the night.

These photos are beautiful, I love lighthouses - this is quite an unusual one! and the beach scenes, divine. Thanks so much for sharing them. I could 'hear' the tide coming in, enjoy the warmth of the sun setting, hear the birds overhead...

Those are beautiful pictures! Looks like a perfect day at the beach. I love it when the heat starts to wane and the beach is bareable.

You don't have to worry - the birds have been absolutely terrible here too - a lady decided to feed a flock of pigeons on the sidewalk where we were walking yesterday, and they all swooped down in an enormous flock and were surrounding us. It was awful. It looks like you had fun though!
