If it is spring then you will probably find me
driving south. In a little over five hours I will be in my favorite beach town, Seaside, FL. A small town feel with sugar white sandy beaches, art galleries, fine restaurants and outdoor cafes, shopping and all that makes for a perfect vacation! Jim and I usually go down for a week in the spring and then a week in the fall with long weekends between. We spent our spring week here in early May. The weather was wonderful, not hot and actually this year a little on the cool side with windy days.
Checking into our two bedroom condo we have a Gulf front view in the living/dining room and a gulf front view in the master bedroom. While drifting to sleep I love to leave the door open and listen to the waves and what a great view first thing in the morning! My sister and brother-in-law joined us later in the week.
Sitting on the balcony having early morning coffee is my favorite part of the day
Molly, Courtney and Blossom (Scarlet forgot to pose for photo)
Ready to go to the beach, these totes just waiting to be filled with towels, sodas, sunscreen and beach necessities
Walkway to the beach
Under the umbrella and all set to enjoy the day
The sound of rolling waves, fresh ocean air and wind usually has me napping in no time
It was quiet windy this day, actually chilly so a cover-up was essential. No problem, Miss Courtney has one packed for me
One day is for art galleries and shopping
The local elementary school is in a beautiful location. I'm sure these kiddos can't wait for school to be out
Nancy Swann Drew was an artist who sold her work here. I'd hoped to find anything but no such luck! Everything is sold and nothing new added for quiet some time. I was so disappointed Patti
A great hutch
Blue and white
Love this cherub
Scarlet has a favorite restaurant for lunch
I always feel like I need a weeks vacation when I arrive but I also need to rest up after a vacation!
