Back from the beach......out of the cool.......and into the heat!!! LOL! It was a fantastic 5 days at the beach, but now it is time to link up with Elizabeth and the T-gang.
My drink photo has three drinks containers this week......why?? The JIB cup was my coffee this morning after having to fast for two different tests. One was an artery scan.......absolutely no caffeine for 12 hours and the second was a lab panel.........fasting for 12 hours. Thank goodness the scan was at 7:40 a.m. and the lab is a walk-in......so I did them back to back. I don't normally eat fast food, but my first choice is Jack in the Box when I do. It is about the only place I can handle for a breakfast sandwich on grilled sour dough bread.........and then I have to be at the starving point for that! Now I am home and drinking my first bottle of water......I just keep refilling this bottle, it holds 33.8 FL.OZ. or 1L, and I try to get at least three down each day.
The other paper cup is holding these........shells and sand dollars that were picked up on a morning walk along the water at low tide. I have tons of whole sand dollars so I have gotten picky about which ones I pick up now. I had to have the one with the black tar on it, cause I think it looks like a turtle. I am thinking of painting the black spot to look even more like a turtle. The scallop shells are not as common......so I had to have them too.
The weather was gorgeous, this was the first day we woke to clear sunny skies, we were camped way up in the sand dunes. You can barely see the fence between us and the water......that is a bird sanctuary and nobody is allowed in there. To get down to the water we had to walk to the right and then down. Great exercise for the legs in all that soft sand.
The evenings were just as gorgeous, now you can see the fence better.
The days usually started like this, over cast and cool, but it burned off fast. This is looking out from my trailer door.
Papa and I did take the two oldest into town to goof off and to have lunch. The two little ones went the day before with their mothers. I had Hannah and Rachel stop by this hanging basket of flowers.
They spotted Elvis and wanted a picture with him.
Megan on their quad, getting ready to take off. Be still my heart, she is only 6 and can ride the heck out of that thing. She and Maddy, who is 7 both learned to ride this trip. They were NOT allowed into the sand dunes, but got to circle the camp.
Megan is helping Maddy get started. That is my son's sand buggy to the right. This photo is looking out into the sand dunes. The only way we could tell these two apart, when riding quads is Maddy has a red sweatshirt jacket and Megan is in pink. They have a little trouble pulling in the clutch handle to start them, but after that they are off!!! They have a thumb ignition and they will ride until their little thumbs get to tired to push the button.
So that's a wrap for this past week, now I'm off to see what the rest of the T-gang has been up to and what they are drinking this week. Hope you can join us.
Elizabeth also is the hostess for a Second Look on the Second, a chance to show something again that others may have missed the first time you posted it. Great fun and ANYBODY can join in.
