I've only been home about fourteen hours and I already miss the ocean. For the first time we took a vacation with our children, their spouses, and their children. It was absolutely wonderful. Many happy and fun memories were made. It's been 37 years since I've seen the ocean, so of course there were many hundreds of pictures taken. Just let me say right now, this post is heavy on the pictures...light on words! I think when you see the pictures below, you'll understand why I miss being there.
I miss the sound of the waves crashing right outside our bedroom window.
I miss the amazing colors.
I miss the birds.
I miss the morning walks I took along the beach.
I miss the sunrises.
I miss the sunsets.
I even miss the seaweed in the golden light of sunset.
I miss the details.
But, most of all, I miss seeing these guys each morning and hugging them goodnight.
I can think of only one thing I won't be missing...sand in my bed!
I'm sure you're going to see more pictures from our family vacation at Dauphin Island, Alabama.
