By the time we got back to the condo it was still light outside, and we were able to enjoy the beautiful ocean view aaannnddd fancy cable at the same time. (The couch sat right next to the ocean front balcony.) Say whhhhaaaaatttt???? It was awesome. Just awesome. Sidenote: House Hunters is still my favorite…and House Hunters International?!!? Fahgetaboutit.
On Sunday we woke up to dreary skies and a rainy forecast. We easily made peace with this, as we’re both huge fans of watching storms roll in across the ocean. See?
After drinking coffee and admiring the rain from the dryness of our 12th story balcony, we decided to brave the weather and dip our toes into the sand before this sucker showed up:
Then low and behold we got down to the beach and it cleared up!
We ended up spending the rest of the day with our toes in the sand, soaking in the sun, and reading the incredible mystery series my father and sister wrote together. Seriously… they’re AWESOME!!! (… and I wouldn’t just say that. I taught middle school reading. I’ve read a LOT of kids’ books and these. are. awesome. ) I’m hooked!
This morning we got up, walked on the beach, (Okay… Sean walked on the beach. I slept in. Egyptian cotton is a powerful force to be reckoned with.)Then we had coffee on the balcony, and headed home.
Such an amazing vacation, and I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to go. This was the first vacation we’d had by ourselves in 2 1/2 years!!!!!!
(P.S. There’s news on the adoption front. We’ll be going back to Africa soon! Unfortunately we won’t be bringing Abiella home with us but at least we’ll get to see her! Details on that piece of information soon.)
