This year I have decided that Ollie and I will not be jilted by his "need" to watch stinky (a term Ollie and myself use to describe said team) Alabama football. So, I took it upon myself to book a beachfront condo for us girls in Destin, Florida. With Issac bearing down on the gulf coast I was afraid the weather would be awful. Wanting to avoid backing out (it's a pride thing) and a $200 cancellation policy, we ventured on.
As you can clearly see, the weather was AWESOME!!
Saturday was great and Sunday was even better!! The waves were small, the undertow non-existent and the water crystal clear. A small "island" had formed just off the beach providing a wonderful swimming area as well as the perfect spot to set up my chair.
On Sunday, John joined us. He loves his Alabama football but missed his girls more. After a few more beach hours, we dressed and walked (down the beach) to the Back Porch.
I packed a couple of flashlights for the journey home.
I can remember hunting sand crabs with my parents so taking Ollie was very special. She had a blast and kept us laughing the whole time. She may be terrified of love bugs but can chase down and pick up (tiny) crabs like a pro.
Looks like we may have started something-
A way to keep daddy from going to those "stinky" Alabama games!
Love to all!
