We drove over to Pensacola Beach on Wednesday to see my Aunt, Dad, and two of my cousins - and to look for seashells.
With Tropical Storm Lee having churned through the Gulf all weekend we were hoping to find some pretty shells washed ashore.
It was a BEAUTIFUL day! It wasn't hot or muggy and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
A perfect day for walking on the beach.
We found a lot of broken sanddollars and one whole one - which is now sitting on the table in my Aunt's house - in California.
I love how that works. Rolling through the tide Wednesday morning and winding up in California on Thursday.
We also found a lot of these.
Starfish do not do well in storm tossed waters and we always find lots of them washed up after a storm.
There was a lot of walking
The Island King walked for a while and then decided he wanted to sit and enjoy the weather.
He had the right idea but my Aunt and I decided that this guy had the best spot.
After shelling, we met our cousins at Peg Leg Pete's for lunch - which was delicious!
It was a wonderful day filled with perfect weather, a beautiful beach, and my family.
Living in paradise is rough but we're making the best of it.
