A Visit To The Beach

Last week I did absolutely nothing but lounge on this Florida beach basking in the gorgeous surroundings with Mr PracticalPants.  In September we will be married 30 years (I know) so we are taking the whole year to celebrate our anniversary.  The trip to Florida was part of our anniversary bucket list and we enjoyed taking several early morning and late evening walks on the beach together. We also had fun spending time with my niece, her husband and my darling great niece who is also my God daughter as they were also vacationing too. Of course I always had my camera in hand and took several (a few hundred actually) photos on our walks~

Sunrise route to the beach, love the weathered boards on the walkway.

A little slice of heaven, watching the sunrise on the beach~

Hunting for shells early in the morning~

The pastel infused colors were simply stunning!

Be back soon:)

    Hi Carol! I visited your shop and talked with Phyllis last week. She said you might have some tips on making the trip to Canton. When you have a minute or two, could you email me with some shopping suggestions. A friend and I will be traveling there in October! Thanks! Heidi Toren

    Big hug,

    Hello Carol,

    Happy Anniversary to you and Mr. PracticalPants. I believe that 30 years calls for a whole year of celebrating. I couldn’t think of a better place than the beach to celebrate. I love the ocean; that why I love on the Florida coast line.

    Smiles, Paula
