Stealin' Away


What a wonderful Friday!

I am definitely getting my fall on!!

And today it started with, of all things,

THE BEACH!!


 I have barely gotten to the beach since spring, 
and for this beach bum, that is just WRONG, I tell ya!!
So... since I could go beach it for awhile,
AND 
hit Hob Lob on the way back...I DID just that!!

As you can see, there isn't a soul in the water.
And the life guard is wearing a hoodie!

That is because it was in the upper 60's
{yes we Floridians are thin blooded!}
and the water was about 74 degrees.


BUT...as you can also see...
it was an absolutely GORGEOUS day at South Daytona Beach!

I looovvee the color of the water!!


And of course, the adorable shore birds!!  


 I do not know this family, but simply couldn't
resist snapping this charming pic of them walking 
to the water!!

Doesn't it just thrill you to think that when God
made the world...
He made it for us to enjoy!!!???

He was thinking of you and me all the while,
and I am always refreshed and filled
with awe and wonder when I am surrounded 
with His incredible creation!!!

The sand was so sparkly...like glitter had been sprinkled all over!!
JOY!!



Have a fabulous weekend, and splash some joy around!

Hugs!!!

It looks like it was a beautiful day there! It's so funny that it was empty. That's a cute picture of the Dad and his kids.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Becky,

Your beach photographs are beautiful, love the colour of the water and sky and the sparkly sand.
Don't you always come away from the beach refreshed and happy.

Enjoy the weekend

I too adore the beach, Becky! I had to chuckle at your mention of "chilly" temps in the upper 60's, though! I could spend hours on the beach, searching for shells!!!

Jane said...

I can hear the waves crash upon the sand...and the sound of the wind...and birds. Your photographs are gorgeous!!! Like you, I have not been to the beach in weeks....since we returned from St A. That's so wrong. As you said, God gave us this beautiful gift to enjoy. Maybe I'll get there this weekend...
Hugs!

What a lovely day at the beach! That is so great you are close. We want to take Mary to the beach one of these days. Maybe next spring or summer when it warms up:)

Hi Beck,
Didn't know you still were posting on this blog too. The beach looks so wonderful........course,
wouldn't be this morning as it is pretty chilly out. Loving the feel of Fall in the air tho, so
great!!
Well, we did get 1 coat of sealer on the porch, so happy about that. Poor Jimmy has a bad cold and is feeling terrible, or at least he was last night, am hoping he will be feeling much better after a good long night of rest, he is still sleeping and it is 10:00, course, he always sleeps in on Saturday.

Got 4 folding chairs from Wendy yesterday too,
and got my hair done, and the cakes and food ordered........ finally!! Only took me 3-4 attempts on each one. So things are clicking
along.

Hope you have a good weekend hon,
Love ya, Nellie

Oh..........and when this is all over, we need
to have our own personal lil party together!!
No agenda, just a lazy, fun, chatty day.........

Love ya, Nellie

NOTHING better than the beach during fall. Although, our water temps have been ridiculously low the last 2 years. Not getting above the mid-sixties. YIKES!!
Have a wonderful week, my friend.
