From the Mountains to the Sea!

After a fabulous weekend in the mountains, we returned home for less than 12 hours. We washed clothes, re-packed, and loaded the car again for our next adventure…Sun, sand, seafood, and shark fishing!

We turned lemons into lemonade with a last minute family beach trip, before school was set to start back. The lemons came in the form of a cancelled Spring Break cruise due to Covid-19, but the lemonade came when I had the vacation time available, and an opportunity for a week at the beach, for just the 3 of us, kind of fell into our laps.

Some family friends, who own a beach condo, had the days available, and only charged us the cleaning fee. We had a week of relaxation, with no agenda. It was bliss! And it was an added blessing that this was our second beach trip this summer. We had already been about a month prior with our extended family.

This time, we were on the gulf side of FL, and the water was crystal clear. We enjoyed snorkeling and looking at all the fish swimming around, and there were plenty. We boogie boarded on the days that the waves cooperated, and my husband and son even tried paddle boarding for the first time, although they weren’t real successful with it, as they could never get past the breakers. Most nights they fished from the shoreline as well, and on our first night there caught a 4-5′ black tip shark. It was one of the highlights of the trip! (Don’t worry, it was catch and release.)

Below are some of the more scenic photos from our trip. Look for more to come on sharks and sunsets!
